    Default Ads... Location Aware?

    I'm just a bit freaking out by the ads. I am getting ads for Google Chrome,YouTube etc. In German or Neverland stuff. Really freaky. Any idea why?

    I think Google plants cookies and tracks your browsing activity. Whenever I look something up, say, dogs, I get ads about dogs. It's annoying.

    I believe it looks at your IP address too, which contains information about what region you're from.

    Well I don't browse no sites in that language. And my IP states it is from the UK. But clicking the ad it shows "Nederlands" as the language...
