    Google is arguably the most widely used search engine in the world today. Even though there are other web browsers, the search giant has managed to establish itself as an Internet staple.

    But this does not prevent other search engines from offering their services to Internet users, alternatives which may prove to be more reliable and efficient. Indeed, among these alternatives, those which attract the most attention at present are DuckDuck Go, Ecosia and You.com.

    The first search engine, DuckDuck Go, bases its offer on the utmost user privacy. Thus, unlike Google, no data is retrieved and the search results are the same for all users, regardless of the country in which they are located.

    The second alternative to Google, Ecosia, focuses its service on sustainable development. Concretely, this driving force blocks 80% of its profits for non-profit associations (ASBL) which participate in reforestation programs in several countries of the world.

    As for Google’s latest rival, You.com, it wants to distinguish itself from Google by offering several results instead of a single answer. More precisely, the principle of You.com is based around the sorting and the comparison of the results. To do this, this search engine does not present a list of links but offers a grid with results organized by source.

    These sources may indicate the precise origin of the information or a more general category such as “news”. In any case, You.com wants to give users back the choice by making them vote for the sources displayed. Internet users can thus vote favorably or not for a source and as and when these choices are made, the site will personalize the display of search results by placing the privileged sources first, then the neutral sources and, finally, the least sources. appreciated.
