Excellent suggestions guys. Also it'll be greatly helpful if similar firefox extensions can be mentioned when giving a suggestion. Will greatly reduce my workload

Cool suggestions Anupam. One among them will be featured this week. Recommendations made by others will follow in the coming weeks.

I came across this little gem, Cocoon.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...on/?src=search

They have plugins for Firefox, IE and Chromium. Because of the nature of this add-on it can cause issues with other add-ons. It does have a list of which may be affected for Firefox on its FAQ page.

You do need to create an account with them in order to receive the download, but worthwhile in my opinion for those that are looking for a comprehensive all-in one privacy solution.

Moderators comment:
It appears the browser toolbar add-ons are free. Please correct me if these too need the commercial service in order to function. I've removed the commercial links and included one to the Firefox add-on instead. Users of other browsers can search for their add-ons in the appropriate places.

I don't believe that we can allow the above-mentioned post. The add-in is not free. It offers a 30-day free trial, but then it costs $2.99 per month thereafter.

There is a free version of Cocoon according to the page here :

https://getcocoon.com/plans

The commercial version is Cocoon+

The add-on is incompatible with WOT, DownThemAll, and a few other popular add-ons.

Ok...I must be missing something?! Did someone change the link in the original post? I swear that it pointed to a site that showed it as only a 30 day trial?!

Follow-up: I just now saw the "Moderator's Comment". Thank you. I thought maybe I was losing my mind?! (No comment MC......)

They seemed to manage to change their download page between the time of my post and now. I linked to their homepage, as at the time of posting, when you clicked on the download tab, the page offered three different ways to proceed, free (not free trial), and then the two paid for options.
Darn timing! I did a little digging on their site just now and you are able to get at the free version still via the /plans url, which then sends you through the process of opening a free account. I only found this via their FAQ portion of the site however.

Sorry for the confusion!

Edit: I wish I'd read all posts properly, Anupam already posted the link I was referring to!
I'd also like to add that this won't appeal to everyone, however, it seems to be a great option to those that are trying to find a solution to anonymity on the web, as it seems to be an area where many people struggle to find a suitable solution.

Context Search X is a handy Firefox extension that saves time. It uses your existing search engines with lots of settings available.

Best Chrome alternative is Selection Search. It supports Mycroft so adding search engines is very easy, even though it uses separate ones from Chrome.
