NEW YORK & AMSTERDAM: In the wake of the US PRISM Internet surveillance scandal, companies are revisiting how they do business online and beefing up their privacy practices to protect their users.

Private search engines StartPage and Ixquick have pioneered a new advance in encryption security this week, becoming the first search engines in the world to enable "Perfect Forward Secrecy" or PFS in combination with a more secure version of SSL encryption known as TLS 1.1. and 1.2 , which works by setting up a secure "tunnel" through which users' search traffic cannot be intercepted.

@MrXidus
Nice looking page simplicity is always best but i am not using styles since two years.Is it safe to using Styles ?
Sir i read a article about DuckDuckGo their helper search engin somthing like that stores a cookie in browser so due to privacy policy of DuckDuckGo this is wrong so article author ask this question on his website & on DuckDuckGo fourm too,and one of the representative of DuckDuckGo accept likely it & also tell he will fix it if it really happen due to his companion meta seachengin or like somthing.But i like DuckDuckGo,but now trying start page too.

TLS 1.1 and 1.2 have been around for a while http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transport_Layer_Security

too bad they aren't more widely used. But to fair they are only marginally more secure then TLS 1.0.

I somehow don't get good results on Startpage. I recently found http://qrobe.it via this site http://www.privatesearchengine.com which lists the popular private search engines.
