Have you tried the Gnome "deskbar applet". I recommend it. You can
search Yahoo and Google directly from the panel, without ever touch a
web browser.

So,  you never "use the browser to access those services and explicitly
accept the terms of their use through account creation/login/use".

You just use it. Actually, I'm simplifying, because I think Google does
require you to get an account, and that implies assent. But Yahoo
doesn't. And most services will not, either.

Hence the issue we face.
