An iOS developer applied to DDG and got immediately declined - so he made up a fake WOKE resume and submitted it. Here's the result:


Here's the hiring manager in question:

Just because one hiring manager wants a girlfriend doesn't mean the entire company is woke.

There's a lot more going on in that second resume than sex/gender...

Welp I started using brave search as much as I can. Its not very good right now but works ok for some things.  Why do companies hire these crazy people? If I see pronouns, that tells me this person is a nut, an immediate disqualification for anything.

Its just more divisive BS. Stupid people just lap it up.  ugh.

Brave has a new search engine. I haven't used it yet, but I guess it's time to try it out.

I use this as my regular now. It gets me by 98% of the time.   In brave browser you can select it as your default.

It doesn't piggy back on bigtech like the others. DDG used bing, for example. Which is tainted results from the start..

Brave search is it's own search from the bottom up.  And the more it is used, the better/smarter it gets.

It's also why so many companies suck as companies now.

They would rather hire a less qualified person over a more qualified person because the person hiring is also a less then qualified hire. In the end, you end up with mediocrity.

True, but within a decade her hiring decision will turn that company left from the bottom up.  One day they'll decide they no longer will allow conservative voices in search results, and will stage a sick out until management relents.

We've reached the point where, unless you're straight white male, I just assume you weren't hired on merit.
And, if you are a straight white male, I assume you're a fucking superstar.

Unfortunately Brave Search isn't ready for prime time yet. I tried using it for about a month, and it's horrible. I found that I almost always had to use another engine in order to get anything usable. Nice concept, but not ready yet. Give it a few months or a year to grow.

Another alternative that I've been using lately is Startpage. It's essentially a filter for Google; it put sat least two layers of privacy between you and Google so that they can't track your searches. You essentially get the functionality of Google - which is still hands down the best engine - but with a layer of anonymity that prevents them from tracking you and building a profile on you. If you want an extra layer of security, you can view pages in Anonymous View, which lets you view pages you go to from the engine privately.

Startpage

How Startpage Works

I've still been using DDG as a daily driver, but have ben defaulting to Startpage more and more lately, as the quality of the searches matches Google's, which is undoubtedly the best.

I've switched from Google to DDG and now am going to try out Brave but thinking of posting on DDG's social media the quote from President Trump, "Everything woke turns to shit" and see ya later.

Yes, that's the whole point. Google has the best indexing by far, you'll get the best results.

Startpage let's you get Google results without the evil shit that Google want to do, like building your profile, fingerprinting, tracking/storing your search, etc.

Use in Brave Browser for best results.

What really sucks is that they are not search engines anymore and have not been for some while.

They are "look at what you typed, translate that into something else based on a GUESS, and give you search results for the guess, not your text input" engines.

The only somewhat-exception is when you force google to do verbatim search.

I want a search engine that searches for the text I put in. I don't want some pretentious jerk who doesn't know what he doesn't know guessing for me.

Do they? When I search Startpage and Google side-by-side, I get nearly identical results. They'll be slightly different because of Google's browser fingerprinting (which I actively try to minimize in day-to-day work), but accounting for that slight variation there's no discernible difference.

The results are quite a bit better than DDG, too, as DDG is simply using Bing to get its results.

I don't think that Google censors Startpage at all. I don't think that they really can, as it's basically the equivalent of searching Google while not signed in, and in a browser that's not fingerprinted.

I KNOW that they censor you and I though. That's a fact.

Here's the problem we have. Brave Search is a good concept but isn't ready yet. DDG is a good concept, but it relies on Bing for results, and Bing just isn't as good as Google. Google is obviously evil. Startpage gets you Google's results without Google's evil.
