DuckDuckGo. I don't know a lot about it, just that it exists and claims that it respects your privacy more than the others.

Yes I used to use it when I used Opera. Still do on occasion. I use all of the main ones. I remember when Google first came out, they were promoting themselves as being private. Or something. :problem:

Do you remember Topclick? Another one.

I vaguely remember topclick, but never did much with it. Then there was one called Dogpile, which invoked all the other search engines and gave it to you in, well, a dogpile.

Yeah I remember Dogpile. Both are long DITW. Ah, for the days of Yahoo and Ask Jeeves.

Oh, and Hotbot.

Hotbot is still around, and applies to this topic well. They use Google as their search engine now but when used it searches from their IP, meaning it doesn't use your IP.

http://www.hotbot.es/en/

Yahoo is still around and they even use their own web crawler:

https://search.yahoo.com/

Dogpile is still around, but I doubt they do anything but search from Google and Yandex:

http://www.dogpile.com/

Yandex is Russian.

https://yandex.com/

Ask Jeeves is still around although they shortened it to Ask.

https://www.ask.com/

Topclick is still in the business but they aren't a search engine anymore. They're an Internet marketing company.

https://topclick.com/

i suspect i cliked something on DDG and it then allowed itself to be tagged to FF.

i got rid of a few things then got a box on DDG to clik IF I Wanted to let FF do something. IDRC.
i saw that box pop again on DDG so i musta disturbed it somehow. and i must have merged the two
somehow. its quite annoying.
