Search engine Startpage introduces a ‘News’ feature
Privacy-oriented search engine Startpage announced a new feature tool called ‘News tab’. The News tab allows users to browse the world wide web without giving up their privacy. According to Startpage, this extension of their existing private search toolbox will guarantee ‘completely un-profiled browsing experience’. In the News tab results, users’ search history and geolocation play no role. The goal is to provide news outside of the ‘filter bubble’ and fight personalisation and digital curation of users’ perception.
