    India is a massive market, and now it will search on its self-made search Engine called QMAMU

    Danie van der Merwe · news.movim.eu / gadgeteerza-tech-blog · Sunday, 24 January - 16:55

The first private Search Engine has been developed in India and ready to be launched on Indian Republic day, 26th January 2021.

Some advance featured in a search engine is also added, the engine has morphological analysis, it can accept Indian language besides English. Once the user types for search, various forms of the same keywords are listed. The search engine is user-friendly and portable for Windows and Linux operating systems.

How well it will work we'll only be able to tell after a few months of use. But it is really high time that countries started to assert their own identity and presence on the Internet as too many services have been totally US dominated and do not reflect the cultures and languages of 150+ other countries. Hopefully it is the start of a decentralisation and localisation of many services whilst retaining the connectivity between all of them.

    Privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo grew by 62% in 2020... And it's very easy to use even if you're non-technical

DuckDuckGo is a search engine that builds its search index using its DuckDuckBot crawler, indexing WikiPedia, and through partners like Bing. The search engine does not use any data from Google.

What makes DuckDuckGo stand out is that they do not track your searches to build a user profile or share any personal or identifying data with third-party companies, including ad networks.

"Each time you search on DuckDuckGo, you have a blank search history, as if you’ve never been there before," DuckDuckGo explains in their privacy blog.

I've seen the same on my own website stats where Duck Duck Go is not even leaking what search terms are being used. I see nothing. Most browsers allow you to easily set DDG as the default search engine and that's all that needs to be done. I've been using it exclusively for the last few years.
