Gibiru - Promoting a Free Uncensored Internet

Recently, the NSA has had major publishers remove "Alternative News" sites from search results that contain content on on the War in Iraq, Afghanistan and even Iran, US diplomatic and political scandals (like Wikileaks notorious cables), UFOs, even astro physics. Unfortunately, the government , major publishers and search engines are foreced to work closely to chill Internet discourse. America OnLine, Microsoft, Yahoo and others are slowly turning the Internet into an information superhighway dominated by barricades, toll booths, off-ramps that lead to dead ends and track you everywhere. This censorship is accomplished by geo-location filtering: the restriction or modifying of web content based on the geographical region of the user. In addition to countries, such filtering can now be implemented for states, cities, and even individual IP addresses.

Anonymity and Private Browsing

Gibiru Offers Users Private Browsing of Uncensored Seach Results. Gibiru is presently based on modified Google Search algorithm that limits tracking of your internet behavior and privacy thus removing behavioral search result filtering and censoring so that you get natural untargeted search results. Gibiru offers different levels of privacy depending on the browser that you use. The following table explains the difference in Privacy a Gibiru user can expect depending on the browser you are using. For Maximum Privacy Gibiru recommends Safari. We seriously discourage the Use of Chrome since it is a product developed by Google and the NSA. Protect Your Browsing Freedom and Set Gibiru as your Homepage.


Looks interesting. It's a customized Google search. So, not really sure how much of all that stuff above is really true.

What I'm wondering, is how many people here get the pun in the name? (Put it in a spoiler if you know.)

It looks Egyptian, but I don't quite get the pun.

Seems like Gibiru is making the news now:

http://rt.com/usa/news/gi...ru-search-web-google-738/

Quote
If you don’t want your online activity picked apart and plucked by Internet entities and the government alike, the Web doesn’t offer all too many options. The developers at Gibiru are trying to change all of that.

While work-arounds and hacks can keep would-be spies from snooping on the Internet activity of others, novices aren’t left with many viable means of achieving anonymity on the Web. To remedy that, the Gibiru search engine exists to allow surfers to query anything — questionable or not — without risking the repercussions of having their privacy practically eliminated by Silicon Valley companies that are coming creepily close to being the Big Brother of the Web.

Or rather, making the news at RT. It's not like the MSM would ever report on them...  undecided

But the articles has some interesting quotes from the CEO. Here's a quick one:

Quote
"If I am searching for something, it could just be that I don’t know what or where it is, so, why would you personalize my results? Just let me search in peace,” Marshall pleads.

+1 for that.

I posted a bit of a rant that is kind of related here. (About how they collect information and serve personalized ads.)

Well, they have a point here:

But really, I wouldn't trust Apple either. Mozilla is probably a better choice there.

Yes. And you know that the CEO is even more paranoid than DuckDuckGo. cheesy

Is it still paranoia if it's all true? tongue
