THANK YOU emano waldeck!!! This is such a simple, seamless way to eliminate Google's insidious tracking, which actually violates antitrust laws. Google it!! Their new opt-out scheme is practically impossible to navigate, and wastes at least a half hour to unravel. I seriously doubt that it even works.
