    There is also http://www.yauba.com/ - I can't say how good the results are compared to Scroogle but it looks interesting from the privacy point of view.

    Ixquick also fairly speedy for me, on a couple of machines with different software/hardware. You don't get a lot of search results, of course, compared
    to others. I use:

    Scroogle's search results are much better then IxQuick's :(
    And if you uncheck every engine except google in IxQuick, no results are found, so it seems they have the same problem as Scroogle.

    Failing a return - not the end. Find yourselves "better searching without _oogle" (or Fravia) and you'll discover several alternatives exist.

    I don't see any announcement on the above link. In fact I don't see any announcement anywhere there, and https://ssl.scroogle.org/ works like it did before.

    o_O :doubt:

    It's back up again, maybe Google made some changes for them? They haven't announced anything.

    I have advised them @ Scroogle TO NOT TALK TO GOOGLE ABOUT THIS as they are trying to block them!!

    I gave them some tips to get them going again and i hope they dont blow it :)


    Google really has gotton quite intrusive (Like M$) and its sad......
