You can use as an alternative to google, some of which have better tools and layouts that make it easier to find what you’re. Looking for let’s get started. Let’s start with two of google’s largest competitors, first of which is bing from microsoft.
Worldwide. It’s in second place, with a market share of nearly seven percent. When doing a search, you’ll notice that the layout is very similar to what you’d, find on google. What i like about bing is that their image search is far superior to that of google and its other rivals with a more user-friendly layout.

So if you use bing, you may find that there is no need to use yahoo search. So let’s. Move on. If you & # 39, ve grown tired of having your personal data tracked and logged by google and the other two already mentioned.
We’ll, now take a look at several privacy focused browsers. The most well known is duckduckgo. They don’t track your searches or online activities, and the results are aggregated for more than 100 different sources, including bing yandex and many others.
You can easily change the theme by going to settings in the upper right and selecting themes. I use the dark theme and there are five others for you to choose from [ Music ]. A cool feature on duckduckgo is called bangs, which quickly takes you to the search results on other sites.

They’re based in france and claim to never collect your personal data and, quite honestly, is recommended by a viewer a few years back and have not used it since, and here’s, why? The results can be kind of strange.
For example, when doing a search for metallica, it lists their musical genre as hip-hop rap. So if you live in an alternate universe, quant just may be the search engine for you before moving on to the next category.
