Developers are working on a privacy-focused search engine that goes beyond the likes of DuckDuckGo.

DeepSearch from TSignal is an AI-based search engine that does not collect any user information, according to the team behind the project. The crawler-based engine aims to maintain user privacy while offering unbiased information discovery.

"TSignal does all the heavy work in-house, including crawling, language detection, indexing, ranking etc, while DuckDuckGo results are based on Bing/Google APIs," TSignal founder Vipin Kumar told El Reg. "DuckDuckGo is basically another front-end for Bing/Google with some tweaks."

Thanks for the link Bulkley; I've done a few searches and got some excellent results. Advertisements are the bane of my searches. Bookmarked! :D

You are welcome, kedaha. I don't think DeepSearch is fully up to speed yet but I have it bookmarked too. Like you, I do whatever I can to avoid ads. I do wonder where the money is coming from and why.

Promising but definitely not up to speed yet. I searched for "magnolia" and the first 22 pages of results were from Wikipedia.
