    Thanks for posting.

    Seems to me the best way of not getting google tracked, is NOT to use ANY of their services ;)

    Exactly :)
    I don't use any of Google(though some sites' search function is powered by google) and block all their cookies and scripts. But they do have (IMO) the best search engine, but Scroogle is the solution for that.

    Keep in mind that if you use Firefox the phishing/malware protection feature uses Google and Geolocalization uses Google and the keyword.URL is also a google URL(change it in about:config to any other like Scroogle or turn the feature off completely.)
