You might want to add startingpage.com to search engines, Google are making life hard for the guys at scroogle, again. Also startingpage let’s you use a proxy to connect to search results.
With regard to VPNs, you do get what you pay for. Whilst free is good, some might be inclined to pay for such services. Unfortunately, not all VPN providers are created equal. For a good starting point, I’d recommend reading through Which VPN Providers Really Take Anonymity Seriously? Whatever you do, don’t use a VPN service hosted in the United States.
I did look at these, but most of them will slow down your browsing speed. I’m trying to only concentrate on methods that won’t cause your browsing to take much of a hit. Also, I’m only looking at free products or services.
Interesting, does this do anything that checking the option to ‘Tell web sites I do not want to be tracked’ does?
Is NoScript available for Chrome yet? I know it has some cross-site scripting blocking functionality, but I don’t know how similar it is to RequestPolicies methods because I haven’t used NoScript for years.
Likely because the API previously hasn’t supported the finer control needed to implement the extension the way Firefox users are used to. With the API release less than a year ago, it’s likely possible to implement NoScript now, but perhaps like the author of RP, the author of NS has other things taking priority.
Many of the extensions that have been waiting for full extension API support have been somewhat slow to adapt. For example, the full ad-blocking capabilities of AdBlock Plus for Chrome is still in the experimental stage.
The lack of some of these extensions are the reason I still haven’t been comfortable with the Chromium variants.
I think I mentioned this before but I’ll add it here as well. Although Cookie Monster is very good, I’ve now replaced it with Cookie Controller It offers many more options for cookie control including DOM storage, the developer is also very active.
On Startingpage the privacy of Ixquick is combined with the Web search results from Google. The combination of these two features is what makes Startingpage so special.
You can continue using the Web results from the world’s most popular search engine but now under the privacy protection of Ixquick, the world’s most private search engine.
