Hardware: Ubuntu 13.04, firefox-trunk
When I do a google search for "test search," the results returned don't actually link to the URL I thought it would. Instead of pointing to wikipedia, for example, it points to a google URL that THEN redirects to wikipedia. I have noticed that this redirect adds significant time between my click and a website loading. Bing, interestingly, doesn't exhibit this behaviour, nor has the delay, which can last almost instantaneously or as long as ~1.5 seconds!
Is there a way I can circumvent Google hijacking my URL to let me search the web faster? Or should I be using bing?
