Hi gamikey,

Deleting the search history of google is one thing, but the tracking done by google's cookie is quite another.

You can find out how to anonymize google's tracking cookie by reading the following:

* Anonymizing Google's Cookie
http://www.imilly.com/google-cookie.htm
* Firefox Extension: CustomizeGoogle 0.36 or later Privacy feature check box it implement anonymizing Google's cookie (FF needs restart)

I also use NoScript with FF, and it lets you know when you visit a website whether google is trying to analyze your web visits, and you can deny the script from executing. Without NoScript, there is probably a blanket approval since you have no way of denying specific webpage based Javascripts when JavaScript is enabled in FF or any other browser.
