It's the one time of year I'm glad I live on a street full of kebab shops.

It's amazing what Amazon sell nowadays... (I found this link after doing a search on UKCaving.com for 'dan yr ogof' in the Search box at the top of the page).

I just looked up placenta previa on the Internet, and it seems that Amazon sell that too.

Is there a way of stopping Amazon from always coming first on an Internet search?

Is there a way of stopping Amazon from always coming first on an Internet search?

Probably, but it's not easy.

There's an excellent article here: https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/reviews/our-favorite-ad-blockers-and-browser-extensions-to-protect-privacy/

I don't see any adverts, in particular, none from Amazon on Google searches, either directly or via the UKCaving search. This is almost certainly because of the extreme lengths I go to to stop being tracked. They also reduce the risk of being compromised by malware, see the Browsealoud incident (https://www.theregister.com/2018/02/11/browsealoud_compromised_coinhive/) (Before I retired my job description was "Senior Cyber Security and Network Engineer". Compromise of my systems, either at home or especially at work would have been embarrassing to say the least).

Some of these are not easily available on handheld devices, one is Linux specific.

1) I don't log in to Google in the browser config I generally use, I keep a separate config for that.

2) I use Firefox and have uMatrix, uBlock Origin and Cookie Autodelete plugins installed.

These stop third parties installing cookies and running JavaScript, and any non-essential same-site cookies are removed when I close the tab. Other equivalent plugins are also available (e.g. https://privacybadger.org/). Many sites require a lot of third party JS, so tuning uMatrix so that the site works "just well enough" is tedious. Don't try this on any site where you will enter your credit card details though, the chains of 3rd party JavaScript are endless.

4) Firefox has the option of running some sites in a separate container, it comes pre-configured to run Facebook in one (https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/facebookcontainer/). Right click on a link and you get the option to "open in a new container tab".

3) I try not to use Google search (except for maps and occasionally when my preferred one doesn't return the expected results).

Alternatives are https://www.startpage.com/ and https://duckduckgo.com/

I'm running Linux on my desktop. To keep a separate config, I can either "su" to a different user or run the browser in a separate (systemd-nspawn) container.

Firefox allows different "profiles", which can also separate those major sites that do most of the tracking.

I use DuckDuckGo. Interesting stuff. I rate this kind of info so highly I paste it into a separate doc and keep for future reference.
There are some clever people on UKC.
