Have you tried the relatively new search engine DuckDuckGo?
In 2008 an MIT graduate created DuckDuckGo as a new type of search engine that does not pass along personal information to businesses for the purpose of targeting ads to you. So if you are getting "creeped out" by how closely Google tracks your searches, use DuckDuckGo which advertises:
• Zero-click info
Useful box above the links.
• Real privacy
Google tracks you. We don't.
• Lots of goodies
Special searches, !bangs & settings.
• Less spam and clutter - no useless sites with just ads.
You can make DuckDuckGo your default search engine through the Chrome browser.
Last month the Federal Trade Commission called for a "Do Not Track" mechanism that would enable the public to opt out of being tracked around the web.
