Apologies if I am stating the obvious here.

Google will track and record your usage, for instance, I am told - if you go to Barak Obama's website, Google will hook on a globally unique tracking cookie to follow your internet usage round .... forever I think.

To target advertising? Yeh right......to target thought crime more like.

Scroogle will scrape the listings without 'them' knowing it's you.

Cheers

Thanks for posting this. I normally do no use Google for reasons unknown to me. But I checked out the Scroogle site and it works.

Scroogle gives you the same search results as Google search does.

This gives a different set of search results. But is safer has the same advantages as scroogle. Think it does. :confused:
