LONDON — In the battle for online privacy, U.S. search giant Google is a Goliath facing a handful of European Davids.The backlash over Big Tech's collection of personal data offers new hope to a number of little-known search engines that promise to protect user privacy.Sites like Britain's Mojeek, France's Qwant, Unbubble in Germany and Swisscows don't track user data, filter results or show "behavioral" ads.These sites are growing amid the rollout of new European privacy regulations and numerous corporate data scandals, which have raised public awareness about the mountains of personal information companies stealthily gather and sell to advertisers.Widespread suspicion in Europe about Google's stranglehold on internet searches has also helped make the continent a spawning g

Group PlanningBefore we go into all that though, I want to go over my favorite of the new features: Group Planning. When you're searching for places to go to, like a hotpot restaurant, for example, you can long press each result in the new Maps app to create a shortlist. After your first long press, a badge similar to the Messenger chat heads on Android pops up on the side of your screen, with a number indicating how many items have been added to the list.Once you're done picking your candidates, you can tap the badge to bring up your list. From that page, you can share your selection with your friends, and they can upvote and downvote each option. You can also switch between a list view and maps view. The latter makes it easier to see your proximity to each location, so you can factor...
