I am so sick of google's search result urls with tracking info

<< < (7/7)


Does Scroogle just pass on your search terms and then return whatever Google returns? I guess the really important question (to me) is: Will my searches through Scroogle still be subject to Google's asinine restructuring/respelling of my search terms?  (Which I obviously hate with much passion!) I have a feeling that it does since it appears that it just passes info to and from Google, eliminating only the tracking aspect of it.

Thank you.

Hi Jim... I'm not sure if this will apply to in-depth searches; and I avoid google, so I'm not too familiar with the restructuring/respelling. But here is what
resulted when I intentionally misspelled "receive" as "recieve" (which I am always doing anyway). The first screenshot is what I entered. The second screenshot
shows the search term in black bold type at the upper left. I think the search terms you input through Scroogle are unmolested.  :)


Whoa! Revolutionary new search engine! Will NOT track you!

Anyone know of a firefox or other addon to get rid of this garbage?

Try    Better yet, make a search plugin for FF.  Or get it from
  Hope this is helpful.

adding one more GM script to the roster: Google Search No Evil Link Redirects.

Script Summary: This script transforms evil Google Search result redirects to take place on left click only (so that you can copy the URL with a right click or avoid the redirect with a middle click) or removes them altogether. •

Now using scripts "Search No Evil..." and "Tracking Be Gone..."

Thanks for the recommendations!
