    ever try to copy and paste a search result url? notice how the copied link contains a lot of crap code? that code is for tracking your clicks and this plugin removes it... works good! :D

    Google uses a redirection link to track your clicks. This addon simply removes that redirection and turns every search result back into its original link, saving you time and giving you more security and privacy.

    Good, but if you are in chrome i dont think you can prevent this, and also if you are connect to your gmail - also he track your search, Google have new site name "My Activity" that show what they know about you and about your activity.
