The most sensible answer in this thread - by far!

Ixquick isn't good either - when I tried it, I get this little gem: "You 
may be using a privacy-oriented browser extension that conflicts with 
Ixquick. Please disable this extension and try your search again. If 
this does not help, please contact us at (212) 447-1100 (USA) or 
autoquery @ ixquick.com." Yeah, right, as if I am going to do that!

Their interface seems exactly the same as the startpage.com one I tried 
a few minutes ago. Draw your own concussions!
