Product description

THE WORLD'S MOST PRIVATE WEB SEARCH APP
Ixquick does not collect or share any personal information!
Read more on our privacy position or go directly to Ixquick's Privacy Policy.
Ixquick search results are more comprehensive and more accurate than other search engines. Ixquick's unique capabilities include an Advanced Search, a global search and power refinement.

Find phone numbers and addresses worldwide with Ixquick's International Phone Directory, or search through 18 million hours of video fun with Ixquick's Video search.

When you search with Ixquick search engine, you are searching many popular search engines simultaneously and anonymously. Combined, these engines cover more of the Internet than any one search engine alone.
An Ixquick result is awarded one star for every search engine that chooses it as one of the ten best results for your search. So a five star result means that five search engines agreed on the result.

This is significant because search engines choose results in different ways, and each approach works well in some cases and poorly in others. A result with many stars was chosen for many different reasons, and is a consensus choice of many search engines.

Also, while irrelevant Web pages can be "optimized" to fool a single search engine's algorithm, it is much harder for a page to fool all the search engines.
Professional researchers rely on advanced search methods such as Boolean logic, phrases, wildcards, and field searches.

But different search engines support different advanced search methods, and require the user to access them in different ways. Keeping track of these differences can be time-consuming and burdensome.

Ixquick solves this problem by understanding which advanced search methods each search engine supports, and how to access them.

At Ixquick, you can enter virtually any advanced search, using one simple syntax. Ixquick supports a wider range of power search methods than any one search engine has.

Ixquick then sends your query to only the search engines that can handle that specific search, translating it into the syntax that each search engine needs.

Ixquick searches the world:

Search the web in any of 18 languages - even Chinese, Japanese and Korean. In each language, Ixquick searches local and international search engines so you'll find exactly what you're searching for;
Find people and businesses worldwide with Ixquick's International Phone Directory. Want to know who's calling? With just the phone number, Ixquick's Reverse Directory search can tell you. Want to find more information about the person or business? Click on the name and a complete Web search will be performed;
Over 18 million hours of video content. Refine your search in any of the 6 special categories.
