It seems that the world of search engines is reduced to Google and little else. Fortunately, rebels who don’t want to use the American tool have plenty of options. Today we leave you seven different ones.
we only talk about Chrome when we refer to searching for information on the Internet. The seeker Google is one of the most used in the world, but it is not the only one. For all those who want a different (and specialized) search engine, today we have a good list of them.
