Linux Support / why dont linux make a search engine
July 21, 2021, 09:43:46 AM
I recently realized that Firefox is not as independent as they say.  The space bars for typing into say clearly search with google also I have to fill in a google cookies consent in order to use. There are many other search engines out there that claim to be independent but collect info or use other search engine platforms to operate from.  The only truely independent search engine I can find is Tor which has a bad image. Maybe it deserves the image as it bounces information around from server to server to make tracing impossible.  I dont want that degree of privacy as I am not doing anything criminal.

I want a search engine where my privacy is guaranteed, where my activities are not tracked and where people do not sell my information to advertisers. I do not want anything to do with firms who store every detail of information about me.  This stuff could be used against an individual by Governments.  Democracy is a fragile tool.  If an individual is a serious criminal or suspected terrorist then Government can get the necessary consent from courts to follow and trace that person

Why cant linux create a search engine where there is no collection of data or sites visited, no cookies or adverts. Linux does quite well as open source. Wouldn't a decent search engine to go alongside Thunderbird mail help attract people
