I had it in my previous machine , before it went to pc heaven : {
It was a good one and it appears to remains that way
I noticed this
"enhanced by Google " not big deal , but as far as I know it was not in the one I had
I recommend my WOT, I don't get any trackers
and I do believe is in its way to become # 1

Welcome to WOT=

@SuperHero58, that search engine won't become #1 for one simple reason - it isn't a core search engine. Just a wrapper on search-feed provided by google. And most normal people use a search product which was installed on their computer - usually by browser. I mean, they don't change default settings.

That means one needs to have really strong & agressive distribution and tons of money to be installed on users computers.

I am not the average person and I do believe that my Wot Search, can and it will become # 1

We already have over 35 million users base, I do agree that we need a strong and super aggressive distribution, but also more exposure

I get very upset whenever I see advertised computer products, but never anything about WOT, not even a mention of it

I remember the first time I saw someone wearing a T shirt with the logo of Fire Fox, it caught my attention and that is how I got FF, I love word of mouth, but I will like for the people of the World to know that WOT has a search engine; money comes afterwards, never before

Are we good?

Yes, so let go for number one

Business angels will only come, if we believe and act on it

I would like WOT to opt in auto complete for those who want it and six month time to delete information, for those who want it to make it faster; if we pay attention to the reason so many made Google, and learn from the mistakes that drove so many away from them; I tell you that you will see billions flowing in for new projects with the WOT logo

I know that I sound like a dreamer, but most of the time dreams come true if we try

With all my respect to someone who knows more that I could ever imagine

In a light note , if a movie is made about WOT
I want George Clooney to play me : }

Yes, StartPage does actually serve you Google's results. From my scorecard comment:
StartPage allows you to anonymously search Google by proxying the seach through their servers. They don't store logs, have a nice layout and allow you to customize your search settings in the same way Google does.

Maybe you were using the related search engine Ixquick, which is from the same company but offers meta-search functionality a.k.a. it combines the results from multiple search engines.

Sorry. I know this question is not turned to me.

Mywot safe search looks like Google to me.
Try to type "Superman", then click on "news", "videos" or "images", where are you redirected? ;)

Yes , you are right !

You can always get in the conversation , I welcome it

You are right , but I am beginning to suspect a misunderstanding in this thread
I recommend my WOT, I don't get any trackers

When I said this , you can see that I meant WOT
To me Google is like when you fall in love and then you get betrayed , is always difficult not to think about her even when you know , she is not good for you !
Yes I miss Google but they lied !
Is like Sophia Loren for Claudia Cardinale , it takes some time
Unless you could have both : }

I have been using Bing more and more recently. Google shows you what they think you will be most interested in at the top of the search results. So not everyone who searches for a particular search term will see the same results in the same order.

See here for more: http://donttrack.us

DuckDuckGo and a few others are very good alternatives also.
