Now that we all know that the government is tracking our Internet search requests there is something that you can do to protect yourself from being tracked. In fact there are several somethings. Google, Bing, et al keep what is called metadata on those who use their services. That would include your IP Address and other pertinent information including your search history. The following sites do not keep information on you or your searches. Copernic Agent: The best overall FREE, TOTALLY FREE, search engine out there. I have been using Copernic for years. You download and install Copernic on your computer and it remains resident on that unit. They don't keep anything about you because the searches are done from your computer, not theirs. Copernic has cool features including color coding of the results so you can differentiate between pertinent data. Your search results stay on your computer for instant access at any time you need them. You decide what stays and what goes. You can go back months later and the results are still there.
