Hi Guys!

I wanted to introduce you to a new anonymous search engine, of course everything runs under linux.

A cookie is not even necessary for the search, the search query is not visible in the address bar.
This is the only way to guarantee that nobody can read what you are looking for.

We have enhanced the TUXDEX web interface and index. We've now enabled techniques like auto suggestion.

Since TUXDEX is an anonymous search engine and many visitors also use a proxy, we are boosting the browser language of the visitor but not geo boosting. Many sites have no geo information and you would have to trace the user to determine the origin location and deliver geo results.

We have already indexed more than 10 million domains and performed a deep crawl on wikipedia and university sites.

Write me what you think, how you find the results?
I would have to know the keyword and possibly your expected domain or comment.

Against my better judgement, I tried it out with lynx (text-based browser) What I saw:
- The search does seem to work, and results were fairly on par.
- Lynx did not report receiving cookies (bonus!) from the search site.
- Because I was using Lynx, the link buttons, which I assume are for "paging", showed up like:
Code:
(BUTTON______________) 1
(BUTTON______________) 2
(BUTTON______________) 3
(BUTTON______________) 4
(BUTTON______________) 5
(BUTTON______________) 6
(BUTTON______________) 7
You might need to set the name/title of the buttons so they show correctly in text-mode browsers.

Is the site in alpha/beta/production?

Hello SlowCoder!

Thank you for your visit and your feedback.
Parts of the search engine are production, parts under development.
I have tested the site with Lynx and I am happy that it is quite compatible.
The page navigation (1, 2, 3.. ) that incorrect display that Lynx users see
cannot be easily solved. I am sorry, but i will improve it
