    Yes, but I understand how the algorithms base results on your web history. I suspect that you don't. I have been a web developer for 24 years and it is ***** that I understand why and how Google will show different results on my computer to yours, unless of course I delete my complete browsing history and use a VPN.

    You could of course simply use https://duckduckgo.com/ and you would see exactly the same results as I do. But then there'd be no faux conspiracy theory for you to attempt to "stimulate debate" about.

    The missing word is v i t a l

    If you was thinking that why didn't you put it in your opening post instead of as usual just dangling a question out there without context or comment?

    duckduckgo uses Google's algorithms so you will get the same results.

    I want to know if people trust them. I don't. I have my reasons. People may have a different view.

    If people don't want to comment. Fair enough.


    Is there a lockdown on here as well Cam?

    Very heavy handed.

    I tried duckduckgo on my phone. I stopped because I couldn't get on with it

    Maybe I'll have another go when I get a new computer and have time

    So you dont trust them to pay their taxes.
    What are your reasons for thinking that?
