@KeaW yes, sure - I've listed it too, (third column) . I believe it stands out with it's decentralization especially, and that it's not that hard to get your own instance running - haven't tried it, but from what I read.

I've created a simple comparison chart of a few Private Search Engines - any topics missing in the comparison?

- why don't I run a mastodon instance for my family... it seems so obvious to do it.

Had a blast this Tuesday explaining Findx Privacy by Design to this grou of researchers at Department of Information Studies at the Copenhagen University -

I went to speak at a local school last week about online privacy and "third-party bandits" as I named them - believe me some of the boys wanted help to delete the "bandits" from their browsers in the break ๐Ÿ˜‚

Yes, to our knowledge we are the only real ๐Ÿค˜ around! NOT a meta!

Roadmap... "Make a privacy focused Open Source Search Engine, and privacy browsers for desktop and mobile - all to protect people, especially our own kids from online surveillance".....

Privately owned = not big tech or stock holders to please - but freedom to do whatever seems right.

Brave is kinda experimental like we are - following it close and see opportunities with the Basicattentiontoken and zero-knowlegde-sum.

Have anyone tried the Brave browser? - set Findx as default ๐Ÿ”Ž search engine and support our journey โค๏ธ

I wrote a new blog post: How to start a Mastodon server (The non-technical parts)

Digraphs and Ligatures - the works of building an independent European Search Engine

Brave - the privacy browser has made it possible to pay for a service directly in their browser. You can choose to micro-pay for the time spend reading and support verified newspapers like the guardian, blogs and you-tubers.

@Findx is already verified, and when you search in Brave, you can donate to our project via the built in micropayment solution called BAT - Findx is coming for Brave

Get Brave - and right now you can get lucky and have BATs for free.

They did it! ๐ŸŽ‰ - Purism has reached their funding goal for the Librem 5 a A Security and Privacy Focused Phone!

Last week a lot of great privacy-tech companies where speaking at the Data Ethics Forum in Copenhagen. - here is my presentation about Findx [VIDEO] -

FindX now has an app (at least for ios), so it is much easier to use it and to help improving it. There are now two European search engines:Qwant and FindX

Another image from Data Ethics Forum - announcing the Findx app is now both in Android and iOS app stores

๐Ÿ˜‚ At the Data Ethics Forum in CPH last Friday - telling what the most common search term after this phrase is...

I actually don't know if it's for the better or not - the privacy violation is most likely the same, but the monopoly of Google is even stronger - Apple switches Siri search to Google
