    I can't google with tor, which is a huge inconvenience, because I would like to use google's awesome search functions without being tracked/monitored by google.

    I certainly wouldn't be googling without Tor and/or a good proxy, because I don't want google to datamine and build a profile on me. Ideally I would want to use Google with Tor Browser Bundle with scripts disable and no Cookies, so that google cannot track my searches and build a profile on me. How can this be done?

    Does anyone have any suggestion on how I can bypass google's annoying captcha feature? Whenever I enter a search query on google's search engine, an annoying captcha is presented. Even though I correctly respond to the captcha, google still doesn't let me continue the search. How do I bypass or successfully pass this captcha, so that I can successfully use Google?

    Use an "anonymous" HTTP proxy.

    But then, Google doesn't like proxies either :(

    Then I'll add an https proxy on top of my yahoo searches. Yahoo doesn't use https so an https proxy is required for extra privacy (to prevent the exit nodes from sniffing the contents of my sensitive search results :) )

    Yahoo's search results are just as comprehensive as Googles :)
