How nice. I moved from Google to Scroogle for simple anonymity. When Big G finally shut them down I considered ixquick, but I had tested it now and then when I used Scroogle and didn't like it. But ixquick wasted no time to create startpage.com - still my fav., but I have had duckduckgo addon (not plain search provider). I have hotkeys for them. s=startpage, d=duck*2go & ddg=this very one, Duck going on without power of scrpting :D
I have used this search engine now for quite some time, ever since Scroogle was shut down by Google! I think this one is at least as effective as Scroogle (may it rest in peace:-). It is quick, gives me loads of search responses and is as safe as anything else "out there" in this category. With Google getting ever more stealthily intrusive into our privacy, I have come to a point where search engines like this one is a must if you care at all about your choice to privacy from intrusive mega corps like google and yahoo etc.
