  • Bing

    Free Windows Web Android iPhone Blackberry ... Windows S Windows Phone iPad Blackberry 10 Xbox Website

    Bing (formerly Live Search, Windows Live Search, and MSN Search) is the current web search engine (advertised as a "decision engine") from Microsoft.

    Bing is a search engine that finds and organizes the answers you need so you can make faster, more informed decisions.

    Notable changes include the listing of search suggestions in real time as queries are entered and a list of related searches (called "Explorer pane" on the left side of search results) based on semantic technology from Powerset, which Microsoft purchased in 2008. Bing also includes the ability to Save & Share search histories via Windows Live SkyDrive, Facebook and email.

  • Mojeek

    Mojeek, the alternative search engine that puts the people who use it first.

    Search is often considered the gateway to the Web, which is why we believe it's critical that choices exist, choices that take a different approach. By putting the people who use Mojeek first and using technology built from the ground-up, we're here to offer that choice.

    Features:

    • Search that doesn't follow you around
    • Independent and Unbiased Search Results

  • Gigablast

    Free Web Self-Hosted Website

    Gigablast is a powerful, opensource, new search engine that does real-time indexing!

    Features

    Scalable to thousands of servers.
    Has scaled to over 12 billion web pages on over 200 servers.
    A dual quad core, with 32GB ram, and two 160GB Intel SSDs, running 8 Gigablast instances, can do about 8 qps (queries per second) on an index of 10 million pages. Drives will be close to maximum storage capacity. Doubling index size will more or less halve qps rate. (Performance metrics can be made about ten times faster but I have not got around to it yet. Drive space usage will probably remain about the same because it is already pretty efficient.)
    1 million web pages requires 28.6GB of drive space. That includes the index, meta information and the compressed HTML of all the web pages.
    Spider rate is around 1 page per second per core. So a dual quad core can spider and index 8 pages per second which is 691,200 pages per day.
    4GB of RAM required per Gigablast instance. (instance = process)
    Live demo at http://www.gigablast.com/
    Written in C/C++ for optimal performance.
    Over 500,000 lines of C/C++.
    100% custom. A single binary. The web server, database and everything else is all contained in this source code in a highly efficient manner. Makes administration and troubleshooting easier.
    Reliable. Has been tested in live production since 2002 on billions of queries on an index of over 12 billion unique web pages, 24 billion mirrored.
    Super fast and efficient. One of a small handful of search engines that have hit such big numbers. The only open source search engine that has.
    Supports all languages. Can give results in specified languages a boost over others at query time. Uses UTF-8 representation internally.
    Track record. Has been used by many clients. Has been successfully used in distributed enterprise software.
    Cached web pages with query term highlighting.

  • Startpage

    Free Web Android iPhone Android Tablet iPad ... Chrome Safari Firefox Website

    Why did we create Startpage.com?

    As kids, we’re all taught not to touch stuff that doesn’t belong to us. It’s a good guideline. So why are online companies harvesting our personal data without our consent? They shouldn’t. That’s why we’re developing online tools that help you stay in control of your personal information. Search is done. Expect other private versions of common digital services soon. Why?
    Because it’s our belief that personal data should be your data, not Big Data. Period.

    How we made search private

    You can’t beat Google when it comes to online search. So we’re paying them to use their brilliant search results in order to remove all trackers and logs. The result: The world’s best and most private search engine. Only now you can search without ads following you around, recommending products you’ve already bought. And no more data mining by companies with dubious intentions. We want you to dance like nobody’s watching and search like nobody’s watching.

    No personal data storage

    We don’t collect or share your personal information. Ever. There’s literally no data about you on our servers. None. We can’t profile you, and we can’t be forced to hand over your data to authorities, simply because we don’t have any data to hand over.

    Anonymous View

    Clicking search results means leaving the protection of Startpage.com. This could lead to a barrage of cookies being installed on your device. That’s why we developed the "Anonymous View" feature. With "Anonymous View" you can visit search results in full privacy, and keep on browsing: They’ll never know you were there. You’ll find the feature next to every search result.

    No filter bubble

    Other search engines use your search habits to serve you results they think you want, essentially trapping you in an echo chamber of results. With Startpage.com, you break through the filter bubble to see a wider variety of results.

  • searx

    Free Linux Web Android Self-Hosted Cloudron Website

    Searx is a metasearch engine, aggregating the results of other search engines while not storing information about its users.

    Why use Searx?

    • Searx may not offer you as personalised results as Google, but it doesn't generate a profile about you
    • Searx doesn't care about what you search for, never shares anything with a third party, and it can't be used to compromise you
    • Searx is free software, the code is 100% open and you can help to make it better. See more on GitHub

    If you do care about privacy, want to be a conscious user, or otherwise believe in digital freedom, make Searx your default search engine or run it on your own server

    Technical details - How does it work?

    Searx is a metasearch engine, inspired by the seeks project.
    It provides basic privacy by mixing your queries with searches on other platforms without storing search data. Queries are made using a POST request on every browser (except chrome*). Therefore they show up in neither our logs, nor your URL history. In case of Chrome* users there is an exception, Searx uses the search bar to perform GET requests.
    Searx can be added to your browser's search bar; moreover, it can be set as the default search engine.
