Looking for a search engine (vanity)
my addled brain ^ | 4/4/2018 | Me

Posted on 04/04/2018 10:12:47 AM PDT by freedumb2003

Does anyone know of a GOOD search engine?

I want to get off of Google for many reasons -- I don't care about tracking since I anonymize but when they stopped linking direct URLs to images that was the last straw.

But Yahoo (I know almost as as bad) mostly returns other search engine results -- Google is much better at listing direct results.

Alta Vista and Dogpile (am I old?) also disappoint.

Thanks for the bazillion suggestions smarter/more experienced FReepers will provide!

I agree. Duck duck go. And brave as a browser.

If you liked Firefox browser, try Pale Moon or Waterfox.

Ixquick or Duckduckgo search engines

I used Duckduckgo. I do not touch Google or Facebook. They are enemy spies.

BING seems to be better than Google.

Bing is Micro$oft, Duck duck and go is Google, I think.

Only IxQuick/Startpage seems reasonable

I’ve used Bing. The problem is that Bing prioritizes images in search results.

Alta Vista is still in business? That used to be one of my favorites, but I thought it disappeared years ago.

“Alta Vista is still in business? That used to be one of my favorites, but I thought it disappeared years ago.”

Alta Vista was subsumed by Yahoo. In their prime, Alta Vista used a “meta-scrape” of the entire public internet (admittedly smaller back then) to make searches very fast.

Miss that mountainous horizon that was their banner.

duckduckgo is the way to go.....
