It does to me! A search engine is interested in my browser privacy
settings and whether I use "privacy-oriented browser extensions". It
goes on to "advice" me to turn OFF my "privacy-oriented browser
extensions" in order to use that same search engine - that message looks
pretty clear and straight-forward to me and that is why I won't use this
site at all, as I value my privacy. As I already posted, any sane
individual out there would do the same.
Which means what to me exactly?!

I have no interest whatsoever in starting to dig out "what the problem
is" as to me it is a clear-cut case of yet-another-no-mark-site vying
for a customer base to profit from. Thanks, but no thanks!

Well, the fact that you have used ixquick instead of scroogle "for
years", given that until a week or so ago scroogle was available speak

And you know this how, exactly?!
