Google doesn't care less about privacy. True. Microsoft is better? I doubt it.

Cuil or Mooter or Alta Vista might have been better recommendations.

That's what I thought, too, but hey, I'm just the messenger.

I use both and

Ixquick doesn't save any information about you and Scroogle only saves your IP address for a couple of days.

So Ixquick is slightly more private, but Scroogle submits your search to Google, so it gives better search results.

Neither site uses cookies.

Both sites provide a free Firefox search-bar addon. I use the ssl version of each addon.

My practice is the very same as ComputerBob's.

Ixquick is a bit slow though, but it works. Fun thing is it actually uses Google and Bing, but Google & MS don't know who's using their service. If enough people are going to use Ixquick, I'm pretty sure at some point in history Google will try to 'ban' them.
