RE: ad blocker?
I use a GET searchplugin for startpage. Though the 2nd page reverts to POST type url.
I noticed that startpage put the search phrase into the page title, so you can bookmark the phrase. also, startpage/ixquick uses old style verbose boolean (this OR that), so all characters are windows "legal", no | or " characters.

btw, I wondered, how does SSL/https increase privacy whether GET or POST?
SSL encrypts contents. The submitted data (search phrase) is encrypted.
Non-SLL the contents of page (search results plus text) gives away the search phrase.

If GET, the url doesn't give away the search phrase.
But if POST, the url includes the search phrase.

So, privacy needs SSL and POST.
