That appears impossible. Google needs to filter content based on where you live, analyze web trends, and serve you contextual advertising based what you do and see.

Google could absolutely do this in a reduced-bandwidth fashion: allow tor freely, track anonymity trending, develop non-free tools based on said trends at google labs, sell them back to you, and profit.  Google Semi-AnonyDesktop.  Yuck.
