Googlesharing is a service that surfaced last January, offering users the ability to search without Google specifically knowing who they are. One of the most entertaining things about the Googlesharing site is how closely it mimics the Google motif, which is a clever move by its founder, programmer Moxie Marlinspike.
Last week, Googlesharing released a new version of its Firefox add-in that makes private your searches even through the Googlesharing servers that is must go through to use as a proxy. It does this by leveraging Google’s introduction of SSL searches that was launched in May. This way, there is no identifying information using the service even for Googlesharing’s server administrators other than a user’s IP address.
