If you want complete privacy with your searches try https://ssl.scroogle.org/ Google tracks your search as coming from Scroogle and Scroogle wipes the true IP of the person searching, and it is also encrypted between you and the Scroogle servers as it searches Google.

You can get the Firefox and IE plugin for Scroogle here http://mycroft.mozdev.org/search-engines.html?name=scroogle It also has it for other languages and can get the plugin for encrypted or not encrypted. Apparently on their home page scroogle.org the even have it for use encrypted or not encrypted for Chrome and Opera. Tell me that is not a sting, having encrypted anonymous searches in Chrome!
