Startpage does not allow disabling the Anonymous View feature, but I still prefer it to Google.

I used startpage year or so ago and was happy with the results. But now? Someone explain to me How you can trust a private search engine to be 100% private when it's Now owned by an ads company like System 1? Basically, You Can't.. why would ad company want to offer a service that would cut out the very job they exist from/for Collecting data, info. To cram selected ads at you.. and if believe that they aren't collecting data then... Then I have a pet 10' python you can trust to sleep around your neck and you'd be safe and cozy...
