Hi YoKenny and ardvark,
There is also a good in-between solution that is blocking third party cookies.
And Google can work like a two-sided sword, it also has its very good sides and traits and treats, they block malware, they have important information on their cache pages (else we could go without that), and you can also do cookie whitelisting and blacklisting in a cookie-manager, and you have many good add-ons for the Firefox or Flock browser even on a per site per search basis. But then you have not got all the baddies that are there - the so-called Super Bugs that are somewhere else on your hard disk, and the hidden 1 x 1 pixel Web Bugs that come in various categories, you can block these inside NoScript.
If I use a browser with ABP and NoScript and RequestPolicy add-ons and compare that with a browser that has minimal pop-up and ad-blocking like Google Chrome it is like watching the Internet differently, but I for one does not miss what I fail to see,
just go to and add to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\Hosts file
the following Google Analytics # Block Sites
