The 5 best web browsers to search outside of Google

Google search is the most used, but it is not the only search engine you can use. Do you want a browser that gives you more options?

If we tried to make history and remember all the times we’ve done a Google search, it would be impossible to list them all. Of course, it goes without saying that there is someone who has the entire account: Google. Each time we do one of those searches, it is recorded in our account; accumulating with it a good amount of data that is very useful for the company.

Google knows all the applications you use on your Android, so you can avoid it. Google knows so much about you that it does not just record searches or location, it also saves the moment you open an app and which ones you use.

Although there are many more search engines there is no doubt that Google is the most used. It comes by default in Google Chrome and many other browsers; getting with it a bit more popularity because it is strange that we access the web of other search engines to find when Chrome (and the rest) allows us to do it comfortably from the address bar.

On the one hand we want to use search engines outside of Google and in a simple way; On the other we look for web browsers that offer alternatives to the default integration of the aforementioned Google. Bing, DuckDuckGo, Yandex … Choose your alternative search engine, we will detail the best alternatives where to use them.
