If I were you I’d be more worried that Google de facto controls whatever we’re calling HTTP these days than that they have a BigTable entry that ties a browser you once used to a preference for Earl Grey.

This is a false dichotomy: I don’t see why I can’t be worried about both.

do you deviate from social norms in any way more significant than tea preference? Have you ever? No extreme political opinions? No fetishes? There's really nothing in everything big tech companies have about you that would be worse for you to have leaked?

I am worried by both. In fact, I am worried by more than these two things about Google, but listing them all would probably take this discussion way off course.
