OptimizeGoogle Newer! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It seems that OptimizeGoogle is a newer Version of this Addon (CustomizeGoogle) and regulary updated on the sourceforge homepage: sourceforge.net/projects/optimizegoogle

Update for Later Version of FF Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I have just updated CustomizeGoogle to work with FF15 and it seems to work ok.

Here's how to do it:
1. Right click the "+ Add to Firefox" link and use "Save Link As" to save the "customizegoogle-0.76-fx+sm.xpi" file to your computer.

2. Follow the instructions on this page to change the compatibility:
http://kb.mozillazine.org/Editing_an_add-on_to_change_its_compatibility

I changed this line:
<em:maxVersion>3.1b2pre</em:maxVersion>
To this:
<em:maxVersion>15.0.*</em:maxVersion>

3. Drag the edited xpi file into FF.

I haven't checked all the functions, but remove click tracking works, and that's all I really wanted.

Is Mozilla's partnership with GOOG clouding its judgement...or is the following sentence a typo? Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"Note from Mozilla: This add-on has been discontinued. Try Google Minimalist instead."

You guys are kidding, right? Google Minimalist has nothing to do with CustomizeGoogle at all. The former completely anonymized search results, the latter just changes Google's design into a goofy-looking box on a select few pages. Like saying, "No apples? Just eat oranges, man. Same thing!" You guys can't be serious.

Why is this app not available for FIrefox 10.0.2? Are there any other apps that I can use to Anonymize the Google cookie UID?

OptimizeGoogle IS CustomizeGoogle Rated 1 out of 5 stars

@nonhocapito CustomizeGoogle was abandoned in 2008. OptimizeGoogle was a fork to continue the project.

Unfortunately now progress on OptimizeGoogle has been halted, so they are looking for new developers.

However, OptimizeGoogle was updated as recently as November 2010 so everyone using this addon should switch to that anyway.

Confusingly identical to "optimizegoogle". at least use different icons, people!
not that it makes much difference. it's ironic that both extensions are here, and neither is being properly maintained.

Awesome tool - update is desperately needed ...

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

An excellent add-on, but if you think this anonymizes you from google while the internet, you really have no idea how broad their extent is on the internet and the various tools they use to collect data.

It used to be a great extension, we need an update!
Good job anyways

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Not 4.0 compatible- worked great when it did but not updated for two years.

Or... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

You could install Nightly Tester Tools and not have to deal with install.rdf or manifest...

Also, this addon seems out of development. If I want no ads, I'll let Adblock Plus help in killing them.
