Awesome, totally the discovery I've waited for for many years. as I love my privacy, am angry of how tech monopolies share my devices by breaking in to whatever tech device it is, and sell my interests, browing, photos, personal info and NOW! A clean protective search app, and does care of my concerns and is protective of all I look into, or share with, so thank you YAHOO! The best so far, If it is as promoted, then hallelujah!

this 'extension' (add-on) 'Adds' Nothing. no search agent option, no search query string (url), no shortcut, Nothing. It's seems completely Useless.
