Damn, google finally killed my beloved scroogle.scraper.com, which scrubbed the searches and deleted all records within 48 hours.

I feel so naked now.

Question for the web gurus: Which search engine is the least intrusive into my privacy? Any tips for keeping my search history on the low-down?

Thanks...

I'd love to know, too.

After reading about google keeping all search records forever, I want to find an alternative. I never realized that there were already years worth of search history they had on me.

As a child, my Mother told me that happiness was the key to life. At school they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down "happy". They told me I didn't understand the assignment; I told them they didn't understand life.

If you want to browse porn without anyone knowing, I always thought that just installing another, different browser and deleting any icons/shortcut so you could only access the browser through the program files seemed pretty simple...

Search engines exist for the purpose of recording your searches and selling your information to advertisers. None of them are going to be protective of your privacy. Use the one that works the best for you. If you're really paranoid, create a bunch of virtual machines, use a service like TOR and use a different versions of [browser] on each virtual machine.

Oh boy here we go, everyone ready.......

Was the Stop Online Privacy Act just invented as a way of using up political capital so that google could get away with this?

Typically you can't have two big campaigns in a row. People only have so much will power to participate. They used up all the rage on SOPA. Was it to get it out of our systems so we wouldn't protest this?

Isn't Google's new tracking' deal going into effect in March? I heard a report on the radio about. The report sounded like their were going to start tracking and referring you to other sites. Then the report cut to some guy saying that this change was needed to "protect our privacy" sounded like less privacy to me. Probably a good time to switch (pre-March).

Startpage does the same thing that Scroogle did. Actually, Startpage is arguably even better, as it doesn't record your IP at all and it also gives you the option to click on search result links via a proxy.

Nothing in that suggests the NSA runs Google. What I see is a US company coming under attack from a foreign government and that company seeking assistance from the US government.

Edit: And you do understand the difference between allegations in an FOIA request and actual evidence, right?

So cooperating with a government agency on a hacking attempt by a foreign power (which was done to further spying by the foreign power on pro-freedom dissidents) means there is a broad conspiracy?

Did you give it a properly formatted search url?

Edit: Quickly using startpage, I can't find the default search string they use.

if that is not a conspiracy..i dont know what is.
the fact that a govt group is breaking the law...in order to uphold the law..give me a break..

but the NSA does more or less run Google, you dont have to agree, the only thing that matters is that it is happening, and we(those who use google products) will all suffer the consequences.

I've had good luck with FF10. Recently upgraded because Mibbit randomly disconnects me when I'm on Chrome.

Of course, there's some memory leak when running Mibbit and one of my addons (1+ GB), so I had to create a new profile with no addons to get Mibbit running properly in FF10.

But I have a right to use someone else's property for free so I can search the internet. I am the 99%.



you again... lemme guess i am a conspiracy theorist for believing that the NSA actually runs Google?


Yes, if you actually believe that then you are a conspiracy theorist.


wow...really?

more conspiracy shit

combine that with the patriot act..and tell me who really has power?




So cooperating with a government agency on a hacking attempt by a foreign power (which was done to further spying by the foreign power on pro-freedom dissidents) means there is a broad conspiracy?


if that is not a conspiracy..i dont know what is.
the fact that a govt group is breaking the law...in order to uphold the law..give me a break..


What law does this FOIA request purport that the NSA broke, because I'm not seeing one.

Edit: Backpedaling away from your claim that the NSA controls Google now?


ok i'll put it simply, you can read if you want,
http://www.pcworld.com/article/188581/the_googlensa_alliance_questions_and_answers.html

google to enlist NSA to ward off cyber attacks

in case you forgot who the NSA was

sooo...lets see...largest internet search engine EVER...and NSA...no there is no reason what so ever the should ever be combined...



Yes, the largest search engine in the world is seeking help from its parent nation on defending itself from attack by another nation. Such a conspiracy! And easily proof that the NSA is controlling Google now.

Both sources who provided the Google-NSA information say this arrangement isn't about sharing user data, but rather analyzing Google's networks and the apparent weaknesses that were exploited. Google would more likely be sharing details about the attacks and the malicious code that was detected, the sources say.

Just don't sign in and set your browser to clear cookies on shutdown.

Or use Bing, Yahoo!, or some other search engine for which you don't have a sign-in.

IP tracking and browser uniqueness still make it pretty easy for them to track exactly what you searched for.

its amazing..most people..in society, and on ARFCOM, are not open to reality...especially when it comes to things that may go against their lifestyle, and make things much more difficult in life..or slightly against their beliefs...hell even in this case..categorically against all that is AMERICAN.. they tend to fold over and pretend that nothing is wrong.

march 1st...is the slow and certain march towards your slavery, does not matter whether or not YOU believe it. It is happening, you, and your like minded are allowing it.
