In Firefox you are being tracked (approximately unless you opt-out) ... from there FAQ ...
In Google Search you are being tracked ... you can supposedly generalize it ... but given what they use to approximately locate you ... I really do not believe them?!Location-Aware Browsing is always opt-in in Firefox. No location information is ever sent without your permission. If you wish to disable the feature completely, please follow this set of steps:
- In the URL bar, type
- Double click on the geo.enabled preference
- Location-Aware Browsing is now disabled
To provide you with the most relevant results, Google attempts to automatically detect your location and customize results based on that detected location. A location that's labeled "Auto-detected" is chosen based on the following factors:
- Your IP address .
- Google Toolbar's My Location feature. If you have Google Toolbar installed and have the My Location feature enabled, your approximate location (if detected) will be used to customize your search results. If you don't want Toolbar to attempt to determine your approximate location, you can turn off My Location
IS THIS THE WAY YOU WANT IT? Fess up ... this all about competing for advertising and marketing $$$$$$$.
