Searching in Private

Popular search engines like Bing and Google are wonderful for finding what we want on the Internet, but the exchange for this service are that they are able to gather lots of valuable marketing information about us in the process.
Generally, the customized results for our searches are actually very helpful, but because of all the privacy concerns these days, lots of users want a more private way to search the Internet.
A web resource called Startpage is responding to this growing desire for privacy and offers what they are claiming to be the world’s most private search site.
Most search engines will log your IP address, what you're searching for, what sites you are coming from and which link you chose to click on in the search results.
With Startpage, none of these things are recorded, but they still allow you to take advantage of the power of Google but in private.
The site serves as sort of a security blanket between you and Google, much like Harry Potter's invisibility cloak when you're searching on the Internet.
