Thread: StartPage.com search engine.

  1. #1

    Default StartPage.com search engine.

    I think I've heard it mentioned here before but didn't know what it meant.

    https://startpage.com/


    Anyway the way the lady on television explained it is it's a search engine that you go to that doesn't track where you go or what you do. She said even if some agency tried to get them to cough up records they couldn't because they don't keep any.

    Anyway you go through them. They forward to Google and then send the information back.

    I'm not sure if is worth the trouble really. The National Security Agency would probably have a record of you going there and coming back. You can use a secure connection that they probably have a back door for.

    Still.


    You can add it to your Foxfire search engine list.

    I like http://www.duckduckgo.com

    It's what Google used to be.

    Startpage is great. They are getting ready to offer a email which I am patiently waiting for.

    BTW, the woman's name is Katherine Albrecht from CASPIAN who promotes Startpage.

    My understanding is that startpage.com is a "front end" for the results you would get just from Google alone - whereas ixquick.com is for the results you would get from some other (non-Google) search engines.

    Yes Startpage works well.
    Funny, however, that so many links that consistently appear near the top of a google search don't show up on a Startpage search...

    I think it's great that the search engine has doubled it's user base. I've used it for years. Too many searches are manipulated with Google for a number of different reasons. I'm sure many here know what I mean by that.
    Science is more than a body of knowledge. It's a way of thinking. A way of skeptically interrogating the universe. If we are not able to ask skeptical questions...to be skeptical of those in authority...then we're up for grabs.

    I imagine they strip out the paid search result placement.

    Public education is not education ... it is schooling.
    Our military is not defense ... it is warmongering and empire building.
    Government police do not protect ... they control.
    Regulations do not regulate ... they protect the status quo.
    Government banks do not distribute money based on effort ... it is gifted to close friends ... and some of it trickles down.

    The result is war, poverty, fear, chaos, and hopelessness for most people with abundance for a few elite.

    The people involved with Ixquick/startpage are the first ones to man up and challenge some of the most dangerous tyranny that seldom reaches these pages. And in person. It doesn't reach them because doers get things done and talk about it later.

    Inspired by US Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, this site is dedicated to facilitating grassroots initiatives that aim to restore a sovereign limited constitutional Republic based on the rule of law, states' rights and individual rights. We seek to enshrine the original intent of our Founders to foster respect for private property, seek justice, provide opportunity, and to secure individual liberty for ourselves and our posterity.


    A police state is a small price to pay for living in the freest country on earth.

    One of the other engineers put me on Startpage back in the late 90s. I've been using it ever since.
