Brave Browser Takes Over Privacy-Focused Search Engine Tailcat

Tailcat was developed by the team that was previously behind the search engine and browser Cliqz. Last April, Cliqz decided to close its doors . The search engine does not collect IP addresses or personally identifiable information to improve search results, Brave said. According to the browser developer, the acquisition of the search engine can provide a fully-fledged privacy-friendly alternative to Google Chrome and Google Search.

Tailcat is the basis for Brave Search. This search engine will offer options for paid search without ads and free search where ads do appear. "Brave Search allows users to choose a default search engine that works seamlessly with the Brave browser to provide a complete privacy-respecting experience," said the browser developer. Brave claims to have 25 million active users per month.
