Internet lag and delay.

Every time I click to go here or there on the web, I see "Waiting on Google.com" or some such. What in sam hill does Google have to do with anywhere I go, when I'm not using Google search?

I'M SICK AND TIRED OF IT. HELP!

I have a 12mbps DSL line. Running Firefox-updated, and Windows 7. What can I download or whatever?

Oh, and thanks.

two things you can try:

1) if you sign into a google / gmail account via a browser, when you are done with that site, sign out.

2) Install Adblock Plus, »adblockplus.org/en/firefox , it will cut down if not eliminate most 3rd party web ads (many of which are google hosted).
