BTW, please don't ask about a browser or social network either. It kind of falls into the email category.

it does in that DDG doesn't have any of these projects on their radar, that's what @javathunderman was referring to, not that the 2 are somehow in the same function category.

We've said it in the past and it's worth reiterating.... if the DuckDuckGo community created a DDG-browser, focused on privacy, open source, etc. --> we would love to support it! It's just not something we can take on because we're focused on search.

Hi all, for mail projects there is openmailbox.org, all email service is build in pure free software, and one of their features 'in' is the administration/creation of keys for encrypt your mails with OpenPGP, of course the project needs donations for still online, but it's great i use it as a serious alternative for all other mail services known.

actually, such a browser IS the next step in good search because the purpose would be RE-SEARCH.

What that browser would do would be to eliminate overloading or loading of video media, ie deny adobe! (and lots of other adverts) And allow the user to create a research project; to collect text, author, bookmark and group same into a locally viewable "chapter and verse" publication.

it's been my webdream for years.

I wish there was an Email service that was private, and didn't cost money.

who wouldn't but how would you expect them to afford it without a revenue source

your best option is to host your own email server

you can use Protonmail or Tutanota if you want privacy
