Update: Search engines with best privacy policy

I previously posted about search engine Ask.com’s AskEraser privacy feature.  After reading this article from the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Several Facts about Google and HTTPS, I learned about the ixquick search engine which appears to have an even better privacy policy.

ixquick highlights:

  • doesn’t record your IP address
  • creates NO unique cookie IDs
  • privacy data deleted within 48 hours
  • uses POST instead of GET requests to further mask search data
  • EU endorsed (and EU has some of the best privacy laws in the world)

On a side note, here’s the 2005 CNET article where Google was used to discover several personal details about Google CEO Eric Schmidt.
