Scroogle scrapes the junk from Google.

Hey kids, let’s Google again like we did last decade!

You may have noticed that I’m not happy about recent changes made by Google. Their removal of cached links and addition of Google Instant really bug me.

Scroogle, a Google “scraper” site has appeared. Scroogle helps user privacy by scraping off Google’s cookies, and frequently purging user logs. I like Scroogle because it scrapes off Google’s obnoxious scripts. It also scrapes off Google AdWords ads.

This TechRepublic article fleshes out the Scroogle story.

I much prefer Scroogle’s results page to Google’s. I just wish that it would include the lamented Google cached links. Oh well, nothing’s perfect (though ten years ago Google came pretty close).
