Replacing Google with Scroogle

I’m not entirely convinced about Google’s evilness but I spent some time checking out Scroogle anyway. It is a bit difficult to use Scroogle as the default search engine in a browser since it uses POST requests in the web form. However, I found AutoPOST (yes, I used Scroogle to find it) and now I have the following bookmark in Epiphany:

Now, some things to ponder for the paranoid out there:

  • Is Scroogle not evil? Does it log your IP?
  • What logging does AutoPOST do?

[Edited 06-10-2006 17:46 BST] It turns out Scroogle already offers this.
