    Great, you’ve just removed all the anonymity that Google gives you when you visit websites. Google specifically uses those URLs so that the website that you visit can’t see what search terms you had searched for. Without that, the website that you visit can see your search terms in the “referrer” HTTP header.

    You can also just paste the link on http://urlcrop.com/ to get the job done. Works instantly and has a clean, clutter-free interface with no ads.
