Search Engines

Postby Marauder 1 » Thu Aug 22, 2013 8:05 pm

OK if you guys are tired of being tracked by Google and the others here is a couple great search engines

Duck Duck Go
This is a very fast search engine without any tracking.. Looks good so it's now one of my favorites

IXQUICK
Touts it self as the "Worlds most private search engine" Take a deep breath. You're safe here.

Anyway thought I'd offer these up for you guys to try.. I really like both of them because they store no info on you at all..

Ixquick is great! I use Startpage as my home page, and IIRC they use the Ixquick proxy.

Also, recently found an add-on for Firefox called Do Not Track Me. Been using it for about a week, and it appears to work well.

My Son...the computer whiz suggested Duck Duck go quite a while back and I've used it ever since...it is terrific!! I don't go anywhere near Google for anything that I can help....I had posted a bunch of vids on You Tube of antique engines running (my other passion) and then they wanted more and more info and next thing I knew I was all over Google's stuff without wanting to be part of any of it...and it took forever to get out of their realm...I think Duck Duck Go has pretty strong filters for adult type things but at 75 I forgot what that stuff is anyway.

Opos are you the guy who posted all the videos of those monster steam engines on You Tube.. Those are some awesome videos some of those huge single cylinder units are unbelievable.

Thanks

Quick reminder: Similar to building a balsa wood plane, Tab A goes into Slot B. :D

On Google: I really don't like how they collect information, but I'm hooked on Android. I know how to get around that, though.
