    Search engines

    @Canadianeye Wasn't aware that Soros is involved with DDG, all i was able to find are donations and ACLU is on the list DuckDuckGo Donations


    DuckDuckGo in hot water over hidden tracking agreement with Microsoft



    I heard of Qwant but don't have any experience with Qwant, if involved with M$ they probably sell data. Qwant search engine partners with Microsoft

    They're many search engines

    https://search.brave.com/

    https://swisscows.com/

    https://www.startpage.com/

    https://www.mojeek.com/

    https://metager.org/

    https://neeva.com/

    https://search.disconnect.me/

    https://gibiru.com/


    Seems like they'll be up & running when donations are complete https://1776free.com/

    This one is a tree huger but they focus on privcy https://www.ecosia.org/

    Swiss Cows is very good but I went with MetaGer.

    Interesting thread and info.

    Looks like DDG has entered the sellout phase and lost thier founding vision. Time to look for greener search pastures.

    I will have to check out Swisscows. Wonder how family they really are...

    I have the Brave browser and have used the Brave search engine for a couple of years. It might be private but it sucks as a search engine. On non-political items it often fails to provide relevaent results.

    On political stuff, its definitely left leaning. I just searched on "Trump" and the top results were from
    TheHill (very left)
    wikipedia
    Washington Post (left)
    CNBC (left)
    Business Insider (I don't know it leaning)
    The Guardian (left)
    a youtube video (an anti-trump video)
    Seattle Times (left)

    etc.
    Matthew 22:36-40 What is the greatest commandment?
    Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and most important commandment. The second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.

    They all suck.
    It is by the goodness of God that in our country we have those three unspeakably precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, and the prudence never to practice either of them. Mark ​Twain

    When politicians set themselves above the law; when Governors command by fiat rather than by Constitution; when bureaucrats imagine that they posses legislative power... ...then true Constitutional and Divine Obedience demands “defiance” and “civil disobedience”.

    Once a search engine sells out it's time to leave. I am trying the one Trinnity suggested....MetaGer. So far I like the presentation. I haven't tried it out much since I just put it on late last night.

    I have been using Metager for a couple of weeks and it seems okay.
