SquiggleSR : deceiving Google
Posted by: Janos

SquiggleSR is a Firefox add-on which sends generated queries to search
engines in order to deceive them and protect user’s privacy. User favorites
RSS flows and search engines statistics are used to create coherent and
news related queries.
In addition, clicks on non-sposored links are also simulated.

At first glance I was slightly confused as to why this would be necessary, or even be something which had any validity in relation to security through obscurity. It's a great idea however as many of these privatized search engine companies do indeed both monitor and track their users for ambiguous purposes (just look at AOL's decision, which has led to sites such as www.aolstalker.com). It makes one wonder how third-party corporations must picture or imagine some of us as if they believe most of are queries are relevant to or must reflect our personality in some way.
