surprise to me, since I rarely do packet dumps while performing
Google searches, but it seems that Google is correlating searches
with Gmail accounts - even if the user has logged out of Gmail.
In the course of performing some network and software testing, I
ended up going to Google and performing some basic searches to
ensure my network tweaks were functioning properly. I also happened
to be running some packet captures at the same time. While viewing
the packet captures, I noticed some odd parameters being passed by
my browser to Google - Gmail account information.
I thought I may have still been logged into Gmail, so I logged out
of Gmail and performed the search again, and again my Gmail account
was associated with the search. I then went into Firefox's cookie
configuration and deleted the Gmail cookie, performed the search
again at Google, and now my Gmail information was no longer
associated with the search.

Zanimljivo. Zapravo, mislim da je u pitanju veliki napad na privatnost korisnika pošto mi se baš ne sviđa to da se sve što kucam u Google search box može povezati sa mojim Gmail account-om.
nama je lepo, taman kako smo zaslužili!
