Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Indeed, I've been using startpage,com since scroogle,com (similar, but was uglier and lacked features when SP has features google lacks).
And if we ignore the anonymity/super-advanced user individualization techniques Google, FB, etc. use, what I really love (though as feature it's side-effect of anonymity) is that I'm guaranteed to get same results with every browser everywhere - as long as they don't rightfully change with some fitting better or worse to the terms,,, and with most my friends using this and duckduckgo, I can say which to use (I use duckduckgo also, it has it's benefits) and what search terms to use - and THEY WILL get the right results =) It's like back in the -95, man! :D
Great Alternative to Google Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I've been looking for some time now for an alt to using Google's search engine as it limits my search results to what It thinks I want to see. I have a much broader range of interest than Google can present and I like to discover new things, preferrably on my own without bot assist. Google's attempts to be my "friend" has driven it into the "Uncanny Valley" territory and I find that StartPage allows me to benefit from the best of Google without that despised "personalization" that Google forces on a person.
Better than DDG Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Google is still the best search engine. There is duckduckgo but it lacks the ability to sort results by date range which is essential to me. Startpage lets me use Google without sacrificing my privacy however I'm knocking off a star because they use GoDaddy (evil Sopa supporters) for their SSL.
P.S. What proside saying about Google leaving a cookie when you use Startpage is totally wrong. They cannot track you through Startpage or set a cookie from a Startpage search. Startpage gets the results from Google then sends them to you. Google doesn't see your IP or anything about you. Even your ISP cannot see what is being searched for as the data to and from Startpage is encrypted.
For extra protection against tracking you should always disallow third party cookies in Firefox and install the DoNotTrack addon from Abine.

Excited for the Startmail to come out soon!
Good Search Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I don't like being tracked by Google. Truth told, Google provides slightly better first results, but Startpage is very close, and leaves me alone.
Get started with privacy Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have been using this search engine for 6 months and love the IP anonymous searches. I did find that Google still puts a tracking cookie in your browser so it is not totally safe from Googles tracking your searches. If you don't use Google, just remove all G cookies from your history. Otherwise, this is an awesome search engine option with optional proxy to visit your search results. For the totally paranoid users! ;-)
Great Place to Start Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Really appreciate both the privacy and the relevancy of the search results. No need to link your search criteria and surfing back to your IP, as not good can come of it regardless!

Great search engine for Firefox! Doesn't store your privacy. Only problem- it's saying I need to be using a Mozilla based browser like Firefox.... I'm using Firefox version 18.0- 3 stars until this problem is fixed.

This is a great search engine! they don't store your personal info or track your search history like Google does... "What do you have to hide?" you might ask; Nothing!.. I do, however, have something to lose; my privacy!
Startpage (SSL) in Firefox's Search Box ROCKS! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I am ecstatic to find Startpage in the addons for the Firefox Searchbox!
I love the design of the page. You can set your options so that the tailored page comes up as your default, no extra clicks there.
Also, you can differentiate and click on pictures, video, phone or just use the default of Web.
When you do your search, there's a msg at the top of the page saying that Startpage does NOT record your IP address !
So your searches really are private!!!
And the color blue they've chosen is very soothing to the eyes.
Thanks for bringing this addon to Firefox.
