If you try to conduct a search at Scroogle, the portal that lets you search Google in private, Scroogle will tell you that Google is blocking them. It still existsb but Google was blocking some areas -

I switched over to Ixquick and I'm also using their Startpage.com service, which is pretty much identical to how Scroogle worked (and it can easily be added as a search provider in IE, which is good for me :)).

Yep, that's why I switched over to Startpage. It works the same as Scroogle and will hopefully remain online permanently.

Well there is this one also which seems pretty good at least on the surface.

That makes me really sad :(

RIP Scroogle.

Thank you Exile360 for the Startpage.com recommendation -- it is now my Firefox Homepage & has been added to my favorites :)
