Can you tell me why i'm still getting connections from amazonaws.com. Can these be blocked ?
I have myself done a little more work with this and I have to say the problem I was having has nothing to do with your browser. The problem occurs when i use DuckDuckGo as a search engine. I got multiply connections from Google, Amazon, Facebook and others. So it would appear that although they say they are not tracking searches they are happy to allow others to do so. I also found that postbox express email client also allowed google etc to have multiply connections. These connections were on ports 80 and 443 and used both TCP and UDP. However when I used Epic Search i had zero connections from any companies.
