When you download the Google Toolbar and select the “enhanced features” option you are giving consent for Google to monitor and log all the web pages you visit. That’s always been fairly clear but apparently Google is being a bit more sneaky – the toolbar will continue to track your visitors even after you disable it.

Pretty clever way for Google to get data.

Another story this morning shows graphically how Google is reducing the share of money they give to AdSense publishers. Not a good day for Google.
