using scroogle

For completeness, my post below should have pointed to the scroogle search engine which purportedly allows you to search google without google being able to profile you. Neat idea if you must use google (why?) but it still fails the Hal Roberts test of what to do if the intermediate search engine is prepared to sell your data. I actually quite like the scroogle proxy though, particularly in its ssl version because anything that upsets google profiling has to be a good thing. Besides, the really paranoid can simply connect to scroogle via tor.

(Odd that google seem not to have tried to grab the scroogle domain name. If they do, let’s just hope that they get the groovle answer.)
