  • Works very well, at least for latest Waterfox.
    Allows me to enable Web Activity tracking (to get Google News view history/tailoring) without tracking all searches (those should be separate options, Google!).
    Whether you use this extension or not, I suggest disable "Web & App Activity" for Google.com searches and apps (unless want for Google News, etc.) at:

  • Does not work anymore. Can someone please tell me a good alternative?
  • Searchonymous not compatible with FF ESR version
    An update is necessary
  • I've used Searchonymous for years, and it's a great feature, but it was developed using outdated extension APIs and prevents recent versions of Firefox from using Multiprocess performance features. Emails to the author asking if the extension will be updated go unanswered, so it seems that the extension is abandoned. It'll prevent Firefox from working quickly now, and in a few versions (Firefox 57, by the current plan), it'll fail entirely.

    Fortunately, it appears that there's a replacement that someone created, which IS compatible with Firefox 57+
  • Great addon. Does what is says to prevent you being tracked from your search activity
  • Does exactly as described. Any novel privacy-enhancing add-on gets a thumbs up from me. Thanks!
  • works great! thank you for your hard work!
  • Needs an On/Off switch icon I can put on the UI which goes bright red when it is active on a Google page. I just spent an hour trying to figure out why I couldn't set a Google Alert or even log in to manage them before it finally occured to me that this add-on might be blocking me.
  • One issue- URL bar searches automatically use my local google domain. My settings to "Use Google.com" get blocked so it always defaults to my local country domain. But I prefer to use google.com. Any way to fix this?
  • Worked up until today.

    Today I got again capcha page: "Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot."
  • @sandy. understand the extension. I have checked with and without it. Google say I am logged when it is off and unlogged when it is on. So Searchonymous REALLY allow you to search without signing to google.

    BUT google STILL mark each link you click on in the search resutls they provide to you and memorize your IPs.

    In order to have good anonymity, you also need google privacy extension for instance ( https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/google-privacy/ ) which will expunge all tracking from google results links.
  • j'ai toujours Google derrière moi:
    _ google.fr
    _ google.com
    _ gstatics.com

    retour chez startpage :( sniff
  • Currently search always redirects me to my local domain google.ba instead of google.com. Can you implement changes so that we can "force" if to use one specific domain ?
  • The best thing in this world to have is privacy. Firefox Mozilla is the best browser experience that I've ever had.You guys are amazing for having high regards to privacy. Thank you.
  • This does save some of my search settings like the number of results to show on each page but it does not.. "Open each selected result in a new browser window" unless I middle click. Thought it might be a Tab Mix Plus problem but it's this. Using Pale Moon v24.5
  • Great Tools. And whith this add-on we are not blocked anymore on Google when this occurs: "To continue, please type the characters below:" folowed by a captcha.

    Thanks a lot !
  • good idea
  • great add-on; i've been waiting for years ... excellent!
  • I love it, good job
  • nice addons
  • A good idea and seems to do what it promises.

    The one thing that lowered the rating I gave it was memory use. For some reason this one-function extension uses almost 2.5 times the memory that Flagfox (which is active on every page) does.
  • i write review just to give this 5 stars
  • Macht was es soll, super!
  • This extension is a MUST HAVE! No bugs...works great!

    Wish there was a Chrome extension!
