The landscape of the internet has transformed dramatically in recent years, with our search engines and browsers serving as the gateways to the hyper-connected world we inhabit. However, this also raises concerns about privacy, the veracity of information, and the dangers of digital bubbles.

If you have similar concerns, try Tempest, a company dedicated to safeguarding online privacy. They have recently launched a new venture featuring their new search engine and browser, with the aim of placing control over privacy back in the hands of users. This initiative is particularly timely, given the increasing prevalence of AI tools and the concerns around how tech companies collect and use our data.

Founded in 2019 by entrepreneurs Michael Levit and Sean Murphy, Tempest is a leading online privacy company operating in ten countries across three continents. Their new search engine and browser serve as innovative solutions for those who value their privacy and security online.

Tempest Search, the privacy-focused search engine, aims to eliminate search engine tracking, browser history, and ad retargeting.

Tempest also promises to end digital echo chambers and deliver unbiased results. Additionally, Tempest is committed to halting data profiteering by refraining from monitoring or selling user data to third parties.

Another unique feature of Tempest is the Privacy Report, which provides a comprehensive analysis of how websites treat our privacy, allowing users to make informed decisions about their online activities.

I was excited for a few minutes until I checked the site out. See the comments on that page for why. :(
The comments are about the Tempest browser. Not the Tempest search engine.

The search engine might not sell your data, but if you are using Tempest search engine in Chrome, guess what? Chrome is selling your data and making bank!

Those who want to add Tempest Search Engine to FF please add the Tempest Private Search add-on first. Without this add-on you cannot add the search engine by normal means
