Please, be warned: the usage of this extension is being tracked by Google Analytics.
It also tracks which search engines are the most used by users, so I can then be able to add them to the featured Search Engines list.
The extension does not track the identity of its user, nor what terms they're looking for.
Only the search URL syntax is being recorded.
This information won't be shared with third parties.
