This app allows you to search anonymously, get instant results from hundreds of sources, make use of the auto-complete answers, and search directly on literally thousands of sites. Your own privacy is a key factor with this app so you are never tracked or filtered. Your data is never shared or collected.

The stories you'll find are ones that are the most shared and come from hand-crafted sources. There is never a repeat topic within one day and the readability view complete with search suggestions will combine search and stories together for you.
