Searching with Google is not the only way to find content on the Internet. An alternative is the search engine Qwant.
Search the Web
Qwant searches the Internet for content and builds an index to present results to users according to their search query. The free service currently also works with Microsoft and uses results from their search engine Bing to close any gaps in its own index.
Displays search results on a map
As with Google, it is possible to display search results on a map, provided they are restaurants, hotels, banks or supermarkets. In our test, the card function was still in the experimental stage as BETA and did not always deliver the desired result. The maps stelbst come among other things from OpenStreetMap.
Search engine from Europe
Qwant is a search engine from France and is therefore subject to European data protection and the DSGVO. The search engine does not, according to its own information, collect any personal data of the users, which means that search queries remain confidential. This is especially important in privacy searches, so you don’t have to worry about being confronted again and again with advertisements for drugs or therapists, for example.
Qwant can be used with any current browser such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Opera. It doesn’t matter whether it runs on a desktop computer or a mobile device. For the iPhone and iPad with iOS as well as smartphone and tablet with Android, Qwant is also available as an app in the popular stores. The app offers not only a search engine, but a complete browser based on Mozilla Firefox and with tracking protection.
