Submission + - Google modifies links after users click on them 2

An anonymous reader writes: I just discovered that clicking on the result urls that Google provides fires up a javascript that changes the link so that it goes to a redirector at google.com, letting them know not only what you search for but also which of the result links you choose. If you want to try it, hover a result link, then right click on it and hover again to see how it changed. Tracking the results is Ok, Altavista does it for example, but changing the link after you click on it isn't so clearly good web behaviour.
