What alternatives are there besides the google giant?

This topic is intended to share as many alternatives as possible without using the internet giant 'google'.
I kick off with my newest search engine and start page in firefox (also google free).

Sadly, google is now the enemy of the (poor) startup.
My alternative is duckduckgo which I use on my cell phones as well as on the machines here in the office.

Unfortunately, google is still needed to check the ranking of blog posts etc plus, they own YouTube which is another issue altogether.
Thanks for bringing up Qwant. I will give it a try. -v

If you use tails you will be forced to not use google at all. Honestly I gave up the fight, and am hoping for a political situation to this Orwellian surveillance.
