    What alternatives to Google can you suggest?

    Many people suggest Qwant, saying it's it's accurate and since people complain about privacy in several threads, maybe people find this a good alternative. They claim privacy is a priority to them. But so far this search engine gave me less than optimal search results. Maybe you have some suggestions? I would be glad to hear your input.

    Duckduckgo, bing and yandex are some of the best alternatives to Google.

    I've mostly just been continuing with Google.

    Duckduckgo seems to be pretty good on the privacy front.

    Bing, that's Microsoft. Is that better than Google? I'm not sure.

    Yandex is a Russian company. Different issues than Google. If possible Russian government entanglements are a concern to you ... maybe not.

    On all these, the big question is, what is your concern about how your browsing history might be abused? I buy a USB charger on Amazon, then ads for USB chargers start appearing on my Facebook, and in the Google advertising sidebar. Creepy, for sure, but I'm not convinced it's a huge issue. For me, at least.
