Google has an annoying practice of sometimes using tracking links, so when you click on a search result, you are first directed to a Google URL that silently gathers stats, then redirects you to the actual result.

Is there a simple way to disable/bypass this? I'm thinking some sort of Firefox plugin or Greasemonkey script - yes, I've looked. Logging out of my Google account is not really ideal either.

P.S. I have no problem with Google collecting data, but my work connection is extremely slow and this makes it twice as bad.

Try this Google click-tracking disabler


This is better and newer version of it.

Also this one is available for Chrome but I like installing Tampermonkey and installing that linked userscript more because it doesn't use timer and implemented much better IMO.
