Scroogle's Gone? Here's Who Still Offers Private Searching

I will miss this mainly because it is becoming ever more difficult to navigate webpage searches without triggering at least one annoying unwanted pop-up to make browsing less than pleasant each day. Time to try the alternatives!

Been using DuckDuckgo for a while, worthy of a trial.

I'll give DuckDuckGo and Ixquick a go for a while - I see one of them at least does https and I did use that option quite a bit on Scroogle - can't be too careful these days.

Thanks for the information concerning Scroogle. I had it as one of my homepages. I noticed that in the last couple of days IE9 was not able to open it but since that has occurred several times in the past I did not think it odd.

Now I know different.
