I recently did a cleanup at Novarata, blowing out some of the old cruft and bringing some things into the modern age.
One of the updates was to the Custom Start Page. This page has had a collection of search URLs on it so - if you used it as a homepage or startpage - would help you with various searches.
This cleanup saw the removal of some search engines ( due to corporate shifting, they have become more shifty ) and the addition of several others - many that are privacy-focused.
SearX is a privacy-focused open source metasearch appliance that can be run by anyone. Where it gets its information is up to the local operator. SearX source code
PrivacyTools.io - A SearX implementation
Search.Disroot.org - a SearX implementation
Startpage - the world's longest running private search engine
Qwant - a private search engine based in France
( DDG image search also available )
Invidio.us - a privacy proxy for Youtube
MetaGer - a privacy-focused search engine based in Germany
DuckDuckStart - defaults to Startpage results but also responds to DDG "!bangs"
A youtube search field was added, for you folks who don't mind being tracked.
A Github search was also added.
The Custom Start Page was also moved to a new URL: http://start.novarata.net
Hope you guys enjoy!
