Using Track Me Not at the moment:

From the website: “

Long Description: Protects users against search data profiling by issuing randomized queries to popular search-engines.”
I keep wondering about, in addition to this, doing mis-leading searches. For instance, if “they” are going to track what I do on the internet, I could create a batch file that would give them plenty of innaccurate infromation about myself. In a way, isn’t that the same (or maybe better – because I could portray myself anyway I want) as tracking my behaviour?
