Kagi search and Orion browser enter public beta 2 months ago

From Amirouche to ~peacesearch/peacesearch-discuss

# Kagi search and Orion browser enter public beta

_ 01 Jun, 2022  _

**Web tracking and ads are becoming a personal and societal problem. Browsing
and searching the web sensibly has become all but impossible. In response,
today we are launching the public beta of two essential tools that allow you
to fight back and make the web more humane for you and your family.**

Ads dominate the entire web. Advertisers target you every living moment of
your day making your web interactions a "dodge the ad" exercise. It’s also bad
because advertisers know you, your location, and your habits and they use,
sell and trade this information at a startling scale, without your permission
[1].
