Cliqz is a browser with built-in search. Currently in later development as a browser plugin. They want to “disrupt Google.” From their about page:
We have a very different vision of the Internet. We believe in an Internet where values, such as transparency, privacy, openness, security and respect matter. An Internet where personal data remains in the possession of users and these users reach their destination via the shortest route – even if this means fewer opportunities for advertising.
We believe in an Internet where the user’s interest really does come first. This Internet requires a radically new way of thinking. And a complete redesign.
It sounds good! We’ve not had a chance to try it out, but if you use Firefox, give it a go and let us know what you think. I think it’d take someone using it extensively to really understand if it would be a viable replacement for Google search.
