The last thing I want is Google having the cookies set by Firefox by default + a full registration with name and address and IP to track my moves on the Internet.

I use NoScript, and I've found that google-analytics.com shows up on the list of blocked scripts of many websites, with absolutely no warning on the website that information is being harvested and sent to a third party. WineHQ is one of the few sites that does not secretly try to phone home to big brother every time I visit it, and I greatly appreciate that. IMO, Google already has too much power over the web.
