SquiggleSR is a Firefox extension that sends generated queries to
search engines to fox and deceive them and protect web-searchers

users select about which topics they want to generate false queries:
keywords are extracted from users favorite RSS flows. SquiggleSR
supports OPML files so users can import easily their RSS

Compared to tools which protect web-searchers privacy through
anonymization, obfuscation tools have some  key advantages:

the GReader case, anonymization would have been a non-sense while
obfuscation could have been useful.

*    Many users want keep access to online services and do not want to be
