    Thanks for sharing.

    Now only Google stores your search keywords.

    I'd definitely trust Google over many governments when it comes to this.

    Private, so only you, Google and Googles many many advertizing partners know what you are searching for.

    I'm always happy to see a bit more security deployed, if for anything but to encourage its use.

    Re: Google Offer Encrypted Search

    I tried to change Firefox 3.6.3's about:config so that the SSL server was the default search engine in the toolbar, but it's not working. I suppose this will have to wait until 3.6.4. I just added Scroogle as my default serch engine for the meantime.

    edit: and my first search was *****. I have no shame.
    edit edit: what? you can't say ***** but you can say coobs, doobs, foobs? lol.

    Install Add to Search Bar, then visit https://www.google.com then right-click on the Google search field and select "Add to Search Bar".

    This won't change the search engine used by the Address Bar, but at least will allow you to search using https.

    Can you show me where in Google's privacy policy it says your searches are shared with its advertising partners? Thanks.
