Ads by Google

With issues cropping up regarding privacy in major search engines, some people turn to alternative websites to protect their search activity. One of these is Startpage,  a metasearch website and free anonymous web surfing proxy that pulls queries from different search engines anonymously.

Startpage protects your search privacy by establishing a secure-socket layer (SSL) for your browser when connecting to the website server to prevent your ISP from snooping. The search page itself runs through a proxy and only fetches the search results from your queries. Startpage is also configured to let you search images anonymously. Startpage is pretty powerful for an anonymous search engine. You can get accurate search results by using the Universal Power Search to look only for exact words, phrases, or domain names in the web. You can also refine your search as you go along marking them as relevant or not by clicking on the check mark or X mark. Find phone numbers and addresses of people and businesses or find out who called you through StartPages’s Reverse Directory with just their phone number.
