    I'm afraid the company gateway would have compensated for the attempted anonymity. Sorry, mate.:p

    This has actually spurred Microsoft into announcing close to the same deal with their search data. They announced it late yesterday but I only caught a brief glimpse of it as I was heading to bed.


    Here's the first link I just came upon when searching for it just now.

    It might not be the biggest search engine out there, but they're at least garnering enough attention to press the other search companies to protect user privacy.

    ^^ - hopefully though the other biggies will follow suit, i don't like ask that much, in fact IMO i usually find Google is the only engine that actually returns the results you really want, MSN is terrible for that, and ask tries to do other funky things, but the actual search engine isn't good enough
    I don't know how google do it, but usually for me, the result i want is in the first 3 results, and 90% of the time the first page
