Presearch

An open decentralized search engine.
Search is built on blockchain technology by one of the leaders of this technology, Etherium.

This technology firstly ensures guaranteed user anonymity.
In addition, the system rewards participants with token discoverers for their use, contribution and promotion of the platform.

The goal, to end Google's dominance in the world. The fact is that Google is not perfect, but it is the gateway to the Internet for almost the entire world. We believe that the Internet is exactly as Google paints it for us.

Presearch wants to present a more real picture of the Internet, a more transparent algorithm.

Yahoo!

Of course, we should not forget about the oldest Yahoo search engine.
The appearance and success of Google was a surprise for him and moved him to the 2 nd position.
Nevertheless, Yahoo is developing, reducing the gap, etc.

In short, this is another well-known search engine, very fast, works with Russian encodings. Not so long ago there was a Russian version, maybe it's not very popular in Russia?

When using Google's database. Yahoo is the oldest search engine that started providing services in 1994. Today, Yahoo activates efforts to develop its services, but after an unsuccessful refusal to sell Microsoft for $40 billion (which they soon regretted), now they are in an alliance with Microsoft on bird rights.
In short, Gogle got their technology and more developed Bing.

Search Mail.Ru

Mail.ru is positioning itself as a competitor to Yandex, and what is a competitor without a search engine?Naturally, Mail.ru had its own search engine.

It soon became clear that their engine was very inferior to Yandex and therefore losing out.
But you can't do without search, if you don't have a search engine you'll lose users.
For example, Rambler, once a leader on Runet, stopped using search line and its popularity went down drastically.

Side search engines

.Mail.ru started to use competitors' engines.
  1. 2004-2006 - Google,
  2. 2007-2009 - Yandex,
  3. 2010-2013 - Google again.
      Advantages:
      • saving money for the development of its search,
      • Mail.ru had a quality search, not worse than competitors.
      Disadvantages:
      • your search will never be better than the competition,
      • many people figured out that Mail.ru uses Yandex or Google search, so why not search there?
      • Mail.ru had to use Yandex or Google ads and was losing revenue while bringing in revenue to competitors. And Yandex in general, began to require the placement of the Yandex logo in the search bar.
      It's clear that this situation didn't suit Mail.ru and they couldn't do without their own engine.

      In-house engine

      At the same time Mail.ru was developing its own engine, but in test mode - GoGo.Ru.

      But Mail.ru decided to take advantage of its advantage, its search is much more correct in social networks - VKontakte, Odnoklassniki and My World. It searches for text, photos and videos.
      Because of the integration with social networks, Mail's search is in demand again.

Bing

A new search engine from Microsoft.
At first glance it makes a good impression - it correctly searches Internet, pictures ... Completed on Ajax, so it's nice to work with it.
But in essence it reminds Google of the sense of a copy. Maybe because he was given a transcript of 'But It's Not Google!' But it's not Google!

But the main thing is the correct search.
You just have to try, for example, something can not be found in the usual way, try bing, suddenly it will be Bingo!

By the way, country USA and will be more interesting.

Our opinion

I listened to a lot of flattering official reviews, which crumble in praise and are very similar to a massive advertising campaign.
The product is good and even very good. Perhaps the best thing they did in Internet. But only now this is already there. What I do not find on Google, there is on Yandex. What I do not find on Yandex, there is on Google. What for still something. Very similar to the principle of Mail.ru - just earning money.
