Just stopped by to offer kudos to Sunny for bringing this one to our attention. Since I spend a lot of time reading news and tech items, my blocked total is over 3200 since installing (using current version of Firefox).
Some of us may remember the discussion about ixquick quite a while ago!!!
On January 28, 2009, Ixquick stopped completely the recording of users' IP addresses. "Ixquick uses only one cookie called "preferences". This cookie is to remember the search preferences you saved for your next visit. It expires after not visiting Ixquick for 90 days and is anonymous".
Wikipedia Ixquick returns the top ten results from multiple search engines. It uses a "Star System" to rank its results - by awarding one star for every result that has been returned from a search engine
The Ixquick company also runs a search engine called Startpage, which uses only Google for results.
FYI, our old ixquick (multiple search engine results) is parent of StartPage (google search results). Ixquick has added a search name much-easier-to-remember Startpage in mid 2009. :mrgreen:
