If you know someone who is still using #Google search, politely remind them that it records everything they search for forever. 😱
Then (also politely) suggest that they switch to one of the free easy-to-use alternatives which do not track users. 👍
Perhaps you could even send them this link to make it extra-easy to make the switch 😎
@muppeth You're right in principle, but Searx is a bit tricky as it's quite difficult to explain the concept of instances for a search engine. What does a non-technical user get out of using a different instance?
It's easier to explain for Mastodon because different instances have different themes/rules, and also people already familiar with concept of e.g. independent but linked email providers.
mastodon.at is a microblogging site that federates with most instances on the Fediverse.
