Yahoo is looking to Faux News Parent corporation Newscorp to rescue them from a hostile takeover bid from Microsoft. We need to let them know that many of us will switch to Google rather than use yahoo search. I will close my Yahoo mail account rather than be under the Rupert Murdoch umbrella.

Yahoo lags behind Google in every conceivable way (regarding it's services). I dropped Yahoo when I switched to Mozilla Opera a few years back.

Yahoo, I will cancel my email account an have nothing to do with anything even remotely associated with Yahoo insofar as I can help it if Murdoch becomes your new boss.

That is a fact worthy of consideration as I think I am far from alone in that sentiment.

Mozilla and Opera are different.

Boycott Google and Yahoo.


Use ixquick.com for internet searching and Hushmail.com for email services.

I use Google as my primary search and for email if you think I'm dropping them you crazy.

Google does not protect, much less respect your privacy
