I use DuckDuckGo for my normal/basic searches but they are also compromised when it comes to results.
When I need actual meat to something that won't be showing on DDG, I use Yandex.com. It's russian and whilst I wouldn't actually join them, it is a
very good search engine for stuff the others won't show.
You know that 'normal' search engines don't show all results any longer or won't show results from user contents [such as posts], Yandex still does.
Whenever I can't find anything, I use it.
As an example. Try using google finding anything negative about Bill gates, I got 7 results all hailing him as a new messiah. 7 results and!
Yandex, gave me what I was actually looking for. Posts by people, alternative websites etc.
It's the same with images. Back in the early 2000s, you used to get millions of images and I used to spent hours just 'surfing' and being led to new
Nowadays you'll get 23 results, chosen by what the the search engine deems most fitting to you [or their narrative].
However I want to learn NEW things, not be led around a circle. Not to sound like a comrade, selling you a russian website [I know I do but if
something is worth sharing, I'll share it], but you still get all the images for a search, not a reduced amount.
The internet is in a sorry state.
How long before it is an offense to use alternative search engines?
