WEBSITE OF THE DAY - Startpage
On a daily basis it’s impossible to know just how many people log in to their computers, fire up their browser and then use Google to find what they’re looking for. Millions for sure.
And that’s millions of people who are volunteering all kinds of information to Google and their commercial partners.
By using any of the well-known search engines, you’re tacitly agreeing to them recording your search habits. They use this to furnish you with ads and to create marketing strategies for the corporates they do business with.
But what if you don’t want them to know what you’re looking for?
Startpage has been around for a while and would always allow you to search in total privacy. But now they offer full proxy protection from snooping marketeers, so when you click through to your search results, you’re still anonymous.
If privacy is important to you, this is your new best friend.
