    I will definitely give it a look.
    I agree. It is kind of pointless on an unrooted phone.
    I agree with you. Start page is a good choice. I have a friend that is super private and he swears by start page. Thank you for the searx.me tip, I'll look at it.
    Lol I feel you when it comes to hating google. But they do have a super polished and well oiled product in google chrome and google search. It's almost impossible to avoid using it as I have done for several years now.

    You should try Brave browser. It's a browser based on Chrome, has built in adblock, runs better, and can even import all your Chrome stuff, including extensions!

    Also, dear god, I love how it blocks autoplaying videos, it's a god send for news websites, including THIS VERY WEBSITE.

    I used opera several years ago, I actually kind of liked it. What is opera ftw?
    It's just that google has an over 90% share of the market when it comes to internet search and it comes pre installed on every android device. I think most people would just use what comes pre installed.

    I just use Google for normal stuff, then for when I'm using things like Tor and/or other levels of deep/dark web I use DuckDuckGo (for surface stuff) and Disconnect/Torch (for dark), then some illegal stuff for deep.

    That's interesting. I've used Tor too. Only thing is I've usually just used it for anonymity, I've never really tried to access the dark web. I guess that's a topic for another thread but how do you access onion sites and how do you find any to visit? There not as easy to find as normal websites. Is there like a list or directory or something?

    My web browser is Firefox, and I use Google as a search engine (even though I am aware of all the anti-consumer practices they take part in).

    Duck duck go as they are more privacy focused. I generally dislike Google and for that matter any company who makes people their products and source of revenue. So I use them as little as possible.
