@ida Good pointer, thanks!

The reason I stopped using the market leader long time ago is that their pitiful attempts at personalisation made me nuts. I was getting wrong results in wrong language in a wrong country.

So, now I should head on straight to , right? :)

@saper If you want to know more about other alternative engines, yes. Otherwise searx.me is a good choice for crawling loads of different sources and being #opensource; I'm pretty happy with it :-)

@ida I would be tempted to install it on my own as I did it before with . I hope their bang feature is good since I use it very often!

One other reason fails is their half-backed "safe search" feature.

@saper Right, that's why I switched away from DuckDuckGo. For the bang feature the article says #Qwant's providing it, too.
