I noticed recently sometihng like that, yes. 
Often, after loading a website, it tries to connect to
"google-analytics" or something. Wastes time, and sometimes just hangs
because that google thing doesn't always respond instantly.

Sounds great, but what do you mean by "killing" Google exactly. What
have you done to stop websites from trying to connect to that
google-analytics site ? Did you put google-analytics in the "black list"
of the ad-blocker for example ?

Thanks for sharing your findings ;-)
