    I love it when someone somewhere promises not to track me.

    I just googled for more search engines and came up with blekko.

    I completely agree. I've used GMail and Google services for as long as I can remember and not once have I had any reason to worry about my data or their transparency.

    Re: Alternatives to Google?

    I've been using Duckduckgo for a long time now. I can actually say that they provide me with better results than Google, probably because they don't bubble..

    YaCy looks really good! Thanks for suggesting that one. I'll have to look into it. Decentralised and non-corporate is the way to go!

    Re: Alternatives to Google?

    I mostly Duck Duck Go, and sometimes I switch to google when I need an "accurate" or more useful result. I think I am going to switch to StartPage
