      addermc4435 DDG Does store some users info and they use Amazon servers that's based in the US (5 eyes jurisdiction) and report to Amazon. CEO Gabriel, first project"Names Database" collected users Real names and addresses without users knowledge. Sold everything to Classmates. com. And contributes for a censored internet and right wing causes. Trust DDG?? I'll trust a Cobra before I would DDG..

      JohnFastman Searx is open-source. Its business model doesn't involve recording everything you search for and using this to build a profile of all your browsing and then selling that information. Searx is a privacy-respecting search engine, similar in its goals to DuckDuckGo and Startpage.

      Multiple search engines, including ones you run yourself (like YaCy or Solr) can be plugged into it. The API also makes it possible to carry out your own linguistic analyses of search results to improve accuracy.

      karaboungalos Uses proxy!!! That's a feature only a few search (or meta-search) engines have! Plus open source. There's a huge variety of sites you can choose from. Framasoft's search engine is based on searx (framabee.org). Results might not be accurate sometimes, but that's because it doesn't track you at all!
