Google is like a cancer on the web – we have to be careful if we’re going to remove it without killing the patient. Attempt to stop it from spying on people without breaking the features that people rely on (maps, etc.) PS. If you stop using Google’s APIs and services and start hosting alternatives yourself and this will become easier in the future. – Ed.
