Brave competes with Google with a privacy-focused search engine

Brave, a privacy-conscious browser co-founded by former Mozilla Foundation CEO (Brendan Eich), is preparing to launch a branded search engine for computers and mobile devices.

A few months after the launch of the first so-called private news reader.

Brave Search announced, Wednesday, its desire to become a data protection alternative to Google Search.

Today it was announced the acquisition of the open source search engine developed by the team in the anti-tracking search browser group Cliqz.

This technology improves on the upcoming Brave Search, which means it will soon bring millions of users into deep, technology-free searches and browsing.

In the press release announcing the acquisition, Bluff wrote, "Today, most search engines are built on results from big tech companies."

Since Tailcat does not collect IP addresses or use personal data to improve search results, Tailcat's search engine has completely independent indexing functions. Mind delivers the quality that users expect, but it doesn't compromise on privacy.

The former Cliqz team, responsible for Tailcat, changes over during the acquisition under the direction of engineering team Dr. Josep M. Pujol to Brave. He was pleased to be working on search alternatives and the only browser that really focuses on privacy.

Ish said: Tailcat is a completely independent search engine with its own search index built from scratch, and like Brave Search, Tailcat has the same privacy protection measures as Brave.

Brave Browser gives users over a dozen different search engines to choose from as default options, including privacy options like DuckDuckGo and Qwant. The tagline is "Search engines that respect your privacy".

The company said there are two options for users: paid search options without ads, or free options supported by the same network of ads displayed in the browser, which prevents advertisers from seeing consumer data.

In contrast to the metric waves that Google uses to determine which websites are ranked on their search engine, the Brave team has made recommendations on how search engines can rate results in a format that is freely searchable.
