Some people might be interested to know what the requirements are to be included as a search engine in Privacy Browser.
- The search engine must produce usable results.
Some search engines allow users to alter the default functionality, which usually requires cookies. This behavior seem reasonable to me, but default functionality of the website, like advancing pages in the search results, must work without cookies.
The current list of search engines is as follows.
Startpage is the current default search engine, although there are things I don’t like about them, and I would be happy to switch if I could find something better.
I have considered switching to Mojeek as the default search engine, but there are concerns there as well, and currently it is not as good as Startpage.
DuckDuckGo used to be the default search engine, but it was supplanted when their privacy chops started going down hill.
Users can add whatever search engine they like using the custom option.
