  1. Europe’s Android ‘choice’ screen keeps burying better options It’s been over a year since Google begun auctioning slots for a search engine ‘choice’ screen on Android in Europe, following a major antitrust intervention by the European Commission back in 2018. But despite hitting Google with a record-breaking fine over two years ago almost nothing has changed. The tech giant’s search marketshare remains undented and the most interesting regional search alternatives are being priced out of a Google-devised ‘remedy’ that favors those who can pay the most to be
  2. Brave is making a big leap into the search market Brave Search will offer a private alternative to Google Search (Image credit: Shutterstock / bangoland) Brave Software, the company behind the privacy-focused browser Brave, has announced that it has acquired the open search engine Tailcat which it will soon use to enter the search market. Tailcat was developed by the team formerly responsible for privacy search and browser products at Cliqz and the search engine will become the foundation
  3. Ghostery’s Making a Privacy Browser—and Ad-Free Search Engine The tracker-blocking company will soon launch a privacy-friendly desktop browser as well. The popular ad-blocking extension is expanding into new territory—and a new idea of what search can look like without ads.Illustration: Sam Whitney; Getty Images The internet runs on advertising, and that includes search engines. Google brought in $26 billion of search revenue in the most recent quarter alone.
  4. The Association for the Protection of Copyright on the Internet (AZAPI) has filed complaints with Russia's Federal Antimonopoly Service against Internet giants Yandex and Mail.ru. According to AZAPI, granting some rightsholders access to tools that remove links to pirated copies from search results while denying the same to publishers amounts to an abuse of their dominant market positions. Every week, millions of Internet users turn to search engines hoping to find links to pirated content. Not to so long ago, this could prove effective but in recent years th
  5. How to change the default search engine in Microsoft Edge (Chromium) It should not come as a surprise that the default search engine of Microsoft Edge -- regardless of whether it is the classic version or new Chromium version -- is Microsoft's Bing search engine. Some people prefer Bing over Google and other search engines and that is perfectly fine; others may prefer to use a different search engine for their searches. I never found Bing to be very good when it came to non-English queries as it seemed heavily focused on English regions and search res
  6. BEIJING/HONG KONG (Reuters) - ByteDance, the owner of short-video app TikTok, has launched a new search engine in China, entering a sector currently dominated by Baidu Inc. Beijing-based ByteDance is moving beyond its core businesses in news and video and into work-place messaging and music streaming, competing with Tencent Holdings and other Chinese tech firms. The domain for the new search engine, Toutiao Search, sits within the company’s flagship product - Chinese news aggregator Jinri Toutiao. ByteDance, which according to sources familiar w
  7. It encourages users to protect their privacy while online Vivaldi Technologies informed Softpedia today that they've added a new search engine to the growing list of search options of their Chromium-based Vivaldi web browser. We're talking about Qwant, a search engine designed from the ground up by a French-based company to respect users' privacy when searching the World Wide Web for anything that interest them every single day. Qwant achieves its privacy goal by not storing any cookies, nor your search history. As one of Vivaldi Technologies' top prio
  8. The privacy-focussed search engine, Startpage, has announced a news tab for search results. Currently, Startpage gives web, image, and video but the addition of a news tab will bring its feature parity closer to that of competitors, making it easier for people to switch to. As with its other search features, the news results will not be influenced by any tracking, this ensures users see a more balanced list of results. Many search engines use prior searches and browsing history to display results. While these companies say that the results are more relevant, Startpage and other pri
  9. More changes have been announced in the senior leadership of French pro-privacy search engine, Qwant. President and co-founder, Eric Leandri (pictured above), will be moving from an operational to a strategic role on January 15, the company said today — while current deputy managing director for sales and marketing, Jean-Claude Ghinozzi, is being promoted to president. Leandri will leave the president role on January 15 , although he is not departing the business entirely but will instead shift to chair a strategic and scientific committe
  10. Under pressure from rightsholders, Google makes pirate sites harder to find in search results. As a result, pirates are increasingly advising each other to use DuckDuckGo instead. Surprisingly, in response to a very popular 'pirate' search term, Google appears to agree its rival is the best option. In an ideal world, search engine users would be presented with the most authoritative set of results in response to a specific search. Unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world but companies like Google, given the scale of the task, do a reasonable
  11. The Chredge “new tab” page won’t let you hide the Search box, or choose a search provider other than Bing, for the foreseeable future Just saw this tweet from Rafael Rivera: Edge team still has no plan to let you choose your own search provider (or hide the search box completely) on the New Tab Page. The battle continues. He includes a screenshot from the Chredge team’s Top Feedback Summary for February 11:, which shows that these proposed feature improvements have been on the list for the past six months: And they’re still “Under review.” Sigh.
  12. you can bing if you want to, you can leave your users behind — Office365 Pro Plus won’t hijack your search engine after all Sysadmin blood pressures—and projected support call volumes—decreased sharply. Enlarge / Stop trying to make Bing happen, Microsoft. It's never going to happen. Paramount Pictures In late January, Microsoft announced that a near-future Office 365 update would roll out a Chrome extension forcing all searches to run through Bing, regardless of the user's configured search engine preference. Several week
  13. Bing is now very much the Microsoft search engine Microsoft is rebranding its Bing search engine to Microsoft Bing today as part of a rebranding effort. While the vast majority of people are likely to still just call it Bing, Microsoft unveiled its shift toward Microsoft Bing in a blog post today. Microsoft doesn’t go into detail about why it added the company’s name to the Bing brand, other than it reflecting “the continued integration of our search experiences across the Microsoft family.” This rebranding means Bing is now using its own updated logo and a
