Best Way to UnGoogle
Google monetizes online activity by tracking your every move, then selling that info to advertisers. In the quest to UnGoogle, there are a number of alternative search engines. The best of these is Bing. It’a a fine search engine, and doesn’t track you. When people complain about ads showing up from Google searches/online shopping, I show them Bing.
Good but over shadowed by the Microsoft edge app
I have been using Microsoft edge recently which uses bing as its default search engine and have enjoyed using it, however after downloading the app to try it out I was greatly disappointed with it, first off, I’m using an iPad and not a iPhone, and the app is clearly made for a phone, and it does not fit the screen like a normal app would, and secondly you get less information well searching then you would just using safari, chrome or edge, and I’m not talking about the quality of the searches, but the way you maneuver the sites you visit, it just feels cramped in comparison to a normal browser app, but hey, if I was using a phone perhaps I would enjoy this app more.
For me, the major selling point is that it isn’t Google, with all its intrusive baggage (tracking, slanted search results, etc.). The database isn’t quite as large, meaning that when I was searching for specialized information as a medical transcriptionist, Bing didn’t always find it, and I would have to revert to Google. But on the whole I prefer Bing.
One bug to report: When performing a search, after entering the term and hitting go, the app does not immediately display results; instead, I have to hit Refresh. No other browser or search app behaves in this way, and it’s pretty annoying. Please fix!
