Duckduckgo is bing, startpage is Google.
Bing is horrible (use startpage.com instead of duckduckgo.com).
First time I heard of startpage, I will give it a try. Thanks for that.

If Google didn't exist but opened up their algorithms then I'd be alright with that. Even just granting access to the database as the algorithm is quite easy to make with the data.
I don't think it's ever gonna happen. They will be happy to bury the secret rather than passing it to a community. It's a billion dollar secret if not very close to trillion, it's just my speculation.

Theymos probably gets about 0.5BTC/week on advertising.

Not that bad however I thought It would be more! The forum is lacking monetisation. With proper monetisation, theymos can make this forum a money making machine without even compromising anything else like annoying the members. i.e: Facebook annoys the users with their news feed ads or ad in the middle of a video clip.

I think pricing Google.com at $2.5million is an underestimate, just an example though...
I understand that part  Smiley
You can not just put a price tag to the domain that is dominating the entire internet.

A new software needs testing, modifying, again testing then again modifying before you find a perfect one. I hope you have this in mind  Smiley
I know you guys waited a long time and still waiting. May be I will become one of you  Tongue

Yeah, tor used to use it and I'm not sure why they stopped, maybe google's redirection links did something (yes they did they can still log you from that search engine now apparently, much like they can normally) - I don't know why their developers didn't fix that it wouldn't be too difficult.

You're probably right there, they'd have to censor a lot of the db as well.

There have been people that came up with ideas such as making a fee for signature campaigns or even some sort of tax (if 1% was charged then people wouldn't miss much and the forum could make something) - the community might be able to patrol it also as the blockchain is public.

Maybe.
And yeah but the systems shouldn't take 4 years to make with such a high price tag as the one that they've been given. Microsoft has churned out crappy operating systems at a much faster rate Grin.
