    Has anyone else downloaded this software? I use IE7 so I am looking for something to add a little more privacy to my google searches. A link is below:

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    Hello,
    If you use Firefox, there is a Customize Google extension that does the trick.

    I have tried scroogle and liked it. But it cannot be used as a default search provider in IE7.

    I checked out that button you pointed out and it looks pretty interesting. I may go with it for now. Do you know if it does the same thing that G-Zapper does (besides the deleting google cookie)? I think G-Zapper also blocks Google Analytics from tracking the web sites you visit.

    Yeah I saw that little program, CG4IE. It looks like it does a bit more than I was wanting although I am sure many people like it. A link to CG4IE is below:
