Anyone who uses keywords from their referrer data will now see a big bump in [not provided].

startpage (which includes G in its meta search) and ixquick (which doesn't) both use SSL and, furthermore, do not record the IP etc details.

There is no reason for G NOT to pass on referers. G knows what they are; the target site needs to know what they are; and still the original request is encrypted to protect it against intercession. In any case, if a Gov asks G to provide search data for someone, what do you think G will do? I doubt they will refuse as that will get the Gov ticked off with them, which right now they do not want.
IanCP - it's your security.
The original coding is being corrupted ONLY by FF14. It is rendering the 8859-1 pound sign as "character unrecognised" which it never did before and that Opera renders correctly. FF needs to fix this - there are a lot of sites around that do not use the & pound entity.
These always show incorrectly on our sites
