Subject description: a search engine focused on privacy
 

https://www.ghacks.net/2014/11/27/use-the-startpage-proxy-to-browse-websites-anonymously/

A click on the the proxy link opens the selected website with the help of that proxy. The Startpage proxy works like proxy servers and not like search engine caches.

This means that it will retrieve the webpage you have selected for you and display it to you afterwards. This means that only Startpage's IP will be listed in the log file of the server and that cookies won't be stored on your computer either.

Startpage Web Search is better than DuckDuckGo privacy-wise, because of this proxy feature.

Clicking on a search result, even at a private search engine, can expose users to all kinds of trackers at the visited website.

Using the Anonymous View option helps protect against this threat because Startpage.com goes to the website, retrieves the page, and displays it to the user. The website sees Startpage.com as the visitor, while the Startpage.com user remains invisible. This allows users to visit websites while protecting their privacy.

A free Anonymous View link is delivered to the right of every search result at Startpage.com.

See what a link from Anonymous View looks like :
Source : https://browse.startpage.com/do/proxy?ep=453173664444554f496b5146455631445557513550567445444470534d786356474659575348386f5a566450525374444c774541443174
Can you identify which page i visited? Of course, not.
