    Nothing to do with hiding. It’s just that google search results are rubbish these days because they make it difficult to find interesting, relevant stuff. Surely there must be better alternatives. Same goes for YouTube if they keep removing videos for expressing non-mainstream views. Find an alternative.

    I have recently done away with google in favor of Duck Duck Go.

    Love it!

    Since I no longer use Gmail, I've gone to Proton Mail. Who wants to give out Tahoe@ProtonMail though?

    Found they have a neat feature to set your email as pm.me which makes my address [email protected] (not my real account)

    I mostly use Duck Duck Go, but when I don't get a clever result I try Google and often find what I wanted fairly quickly.

    Recently, I haven't been very impressed with the results from Duck Duck Go and I'm wondering why their search results are not displaying what I really want to find as high on their list as they used to be. I want resuts on the first page, not the third,

    The Internet isn’t what it used to be.

    My son has converted to Bing and sings its' praises.

    I refuse to ever use bing because it randomly attached itself to my computer several times and took over my browser without authorization. It highjacks your searches away from the search engine you normally use and its a devil to get rid of.

    TorBrowser is a good way to go if you dont want to be tracked. Also clears your history everytime you close the browser. A good thing to know for those of us who are PIMO or just like looking at porn on a shared computer.

    I'm waiting for the WTBTS for a recommended search engine.

    I imagine they'd call it NuLite and it'd send your search history direct to your local body of elders.

    DuckDuckGo is pretty good. Also, ditch Android altogether, Apple at least doesn't want to track you and is fighting the tracking, Google is tracking everything.
