I use gmail.com as main email backend, access it via IMAP and let all my domains forward email
there were I filter it into several folders (tagged). When I use the search engine google.com,
I'm tracked, every search I do is stored and tied to my identity as a browser-cookie is set on my computer revealing me to Google mail and its search engine . . . today I made the decision
not to use the gmail.com web-frontend anymore, and put google.com and google.ch into the browser cookie blacklist,
so no cookie from google.com|.ch is stored anymore. I access my email with Thunderbird (on FreeBSD, Linux and MacOSX) and IMAP protocoll.
I also run AdBlock Plus for Firefox 3.0 (which I currently use, but otherwise prefere Opera because of the smaller memory footprint),
so there most of the ads aren't shown and therefore no cookie neither tracking my IP is possible.
