  • 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.

  • 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.

  • DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser

    Free Android iPhone Android Tablet iPad F-Droid Website

    Seamlessly take control of your personal information, no matter where the Internet takes you.
    At Small DuckDuckGo iconDuckDuckGo, we believe the Internet shouldn't feel so creepy, and getting the privacy you deserve online should be as simple as closing the blinds.

    Our app provides the privacy essentials you need to seamlessly take control of your personal information as you search and browse the web, no matter where the Internet takes you:

    • Escape Advertising Tracker Networks — Our Privacy Protection will block all the hidden third-party trackers we can find, exposing the major advertising networks tracking you over time, so that you can track who's trying to track you.

    • Increase Encryption Protection — We force sites to use an encrypted connection where available, protecting your data from prying eyes, like ISPs.

    • Search Privately — You share your most personal information with your search engine, like your financial, medical, and political questions. What you search for is your own business, which is why DuckDuckGo search doesn't track you. Ever.

    • Decode Privacy Policies — We’ve partnered with Terms of Service Didn't Read to include their scores and labels of website terms of service and privacy policies, where available.

    As you search and browse, the DuckDuckGo Privacy Browser shows you a Privacy Grade rating when you visit a website (A-F). This rating lets you see how protected you are at a glance, dig into the details to see who we caught trying to track you, and learn how we enhanced the underlying site's privacy measures. The Privacy Grade is scored automatically based on the prevalence of hidden tracker networks, encryption availability, and website privacy practices.

    Our app provides standard browsing functionality including tabs, bookmarks, and autocomplete. In addition to strong Privacy Protection as described above, we also packed in some extra privacy features into the browser itself:
