Ffs, if you're still searching through Google - please don't. There are DuckDuckGo, Ecosia, Startpage, SearX and in almost all cases it's enough. If you really can't find something, switching to Google search is one "!g" away in DuckDuckGo.

@charlag How about qwant.com (France), metager.de (Germany), or yandex.com (Russia)

So much choice, and nobody knows or cares. (The same for operating systems.)


@akf Yandex is absolutely the same survelliance machine as Google, just on a smaller scale (and they don't hesitate to work with FSB).
I don't trust too much looking at the Ghostery: "we'll replace unethical tracking with a little bit more ethical one!"
I don't know much about metager

@charlag Yandex: okay, they store data. But there are people who care less about the Russians than about being spied upon by Americans. Depends upon who you are and where you live.

@akf why choose being spied by others rather than not being spied by?

@charlag Who knows who is really trustworthy. They can tell you anything. DuckDuckGo is from USA. So AFAIK they are required by law to cooperate with their agencies on request, and may not talk about it (NSL).

@charlag MetaGer.de also promises to store nothing. But it's a meta-search-engine without an own index.
