I was discussing some thoughts on the amassing of private data by Google with a colleague the other day who was not overly concerned. She did though pass along a useful plug-in for Firefox you can use to keep your searches private when using Google. It’s called CustomizeGoogle and in addition to helping with privacy issues, it has a wealth of other features.

After the one-click install into Firefox, the plugin gives you total control over your Google search experience. It can hide Google ads, give you links to the same search on Yahoo! and other engines, and provides some cool filtering features. Naturally since it is a Firefox plugin, it runs on just about any computer.

To enable the privacy feature after installing the plug in, choose CustomizeGoogle Options from the Tools menu and pick “Remove click tracking”.
