(remember, one doesn't suggest friends tool that spy on them or exploid them 😜 )

Here are just 3 I have in mind:

searx.me/ opensource meta search engine

#yacy p2p search engine....sounds damn cool, but haven't tested https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/YaCy

#deuSu #opensource and no tracking. Has it's own search index. Yet just a project developes by one person in their spare time (someone adviced it me yesterday) https://deusu.de/

#privacy #searchengine

    @Marzanna if you like startpage I can recoment searx.me very much. There you can choose which search engines you like to use....and there is a great vararity you can choose from.

    qwant and duckduckgo, aren't opensource sofar as I know. So I wouldn't trust them much. Lilo.org never heard of. I'm gonna have a look :)

    ...ah, nope I know lilo.org. In germany ppl use ecosia with simliar purpose. Thought it's just nothing for me as I dislike advertisment where those offering more cash will get the loudest vioce very much.

    DuckDuckGo for me with a fallback to Google :)

    To add one not mentioned here so far: https://metager.de/en and onion version: http://b7cxf4dkdsko6ah2.onion/en privacy aimed and open sourced.

    Oh, and as paulfree14 already mentioned P2P stuff I might add skytorrents "Sky torrents search engine Maximum Privacy, Minimal tracking" found here: https://www.skytorrents.in/ It reminds me a bit of torrentproject, which I miss sorely.

    But does using open source software mean you can trust the site? There is no way of knowing whether your searches are being logged and you being profiled is there?
