Back in September I tried the search engine Dogpile. It was okay, but its appeal wore off after a few days.
I still do not know if there more I need to do to avoid being tracked by Google besides using the Google advertising cookie opt-out plugin and having NoScript installed.
So I looked around for another search engine.
A blog post at Zenhabits introduced me to Ixquick, which even has an HTTPS version for my Firefox search bar.
Will it replace Google for me?
