1. By default, Chrome sends RLZ identifier with every search query. You should create a new, clean search engine.
2. Go to Content Settings and and tick the "Block third-party cookies". Also, you should cookies right after installing Chrome because there are some Google cookies right out of the box. Even in your precious Linux.
3. If you use Microsoft Windows, you also should check your Services and autoruns, because Google takes roots in your system.

Insalling Extensions Without Signing In
For anyone too retarded to figure this out on their own, you can download any extension from the Chrome Webstore without logging in. I'll demonstrate with the Google Drive extension:
The URL for this extension is as follows: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/google-drive/apdfllckaahabafndbhieahigkjlhalf
Take the id, 'apdfllckaahabafndbhieahigkjlhalf,' and insert it where [IDGOESHERE] is in the below URL
Good, now open that in a new tab.
But oh fuck it won't work because you aren't installing from the Chrome Webstore website.
To get around this, you need to extract the contents of the extension file (.crx). You may need to change it from .crx to .zip if your operating system/archive manager is too
retarded deprecated to figure it out itself. After doing that, enable developer mode in the extensions page and load the folder as an unpacked extensions. Congratufuckinglations, you don't need to sign in to install extensions now.
The major downfall to this is that extensions installed this way will not be automatically updated; you'll have to keep up with their releases if it matters to you.
