    We all know Google loves to track and profile every search we run, every move we make. So don't let them! Install the Google sharing plugin and never get profiled again while running a search!

    As a SEO professional you would want untainted search results so you can judge the performance of your clients campaign.

    That is great, new to me too... But why so much hate for google? It puts food on the table for 90% of us ;-) not just Adsense users

    Why not use incognito mode or just log out when you want to search?

    And it is not just Google that tracks. Every website tracks its visitors. If you are paranoid about these kind of tracking it is better to use tor browser than using individual addons for Google, Facebook and every other website.

    Just my 2 cents. :)

    Can you tell me the difference between this plugin and just using google on a proxy?

    If what i read on their site is true. . . then this proxy won't be working that long, once it gets slammed for queries. .

    I like this idea but want something more concrete, and dedicated to the user. I'm thinking of getting something built that just blocks google's IPs from any website that doesn't have 'google/gmail/youtube' in the top.location. Then allows you to add a proxy to be used when you actually use a google service.

    I'd love to just block out all analytics, an anything that google checks when their site is not being accessed. If you look at the amount of GET requests google gets when you just surf the web . . its disturbing.

    There's a much better non profit: scroogle.org

    they filter bots and ban you for a while if you run scraping queries so don't do it.

    "Track me not" is a plug in that can be used with firefox. Been using it for some time. It gets regular updates as firefox updates.
