Google's Invisibility Cloak

A percentage of Google traffic is stripped of identifying information. Why?Google likes to portray itself as a company that does everything in the open. But it appears that at least some of its employees are harboring a secret.
Web researcher Net Applications recently discovered that between 11% to 30% of traffic streaming out of Google's Mountain View, Calif., office is stripped clean of the usual identifying information that accompanies such traffic. That begs the question: What secret is it that Google doesn't want the rest of the Web to know?
