Now that the faceless corporation known as Google is in the business of selling preferential treatment in search results, shamelessly engages in clickthrough and search result tracking, and inserts a never-expiring cookie on your computer that plants a globally-unique ID on your hard disk for profiling purposes, we thought it was time to dump them -- at least dump their intrusive technology. Scroogle, a web service that disguises the Internet address of users who want to run Google searches anonymously. Unfortunately, Google is the most effective search engine hands-down, but that does not mean they should be allowed to track you and throw annoying ads up on your screen. Scroogle is the best compromise at this point.

Scroogle has been around for years. Who says they are a legit site to go through? You will never know unless you personally know the people that run it or dissemble their code.

I find it funny you are completely writing off Sergey and Lawrence's accomplishments all because gov't bureaus have been harassing them for sensitive data. Google never set out to be a massive corporation. They started as a small start-up with a vision that's evolved into hundreds of projects over time.

They aren't the only ones tracking web activity. EVERYONE is in 2010.
