    "I got tired of using Google for searching. I just couldn't find what I wanted. So, I looked for an alternate search engine to use and I found Yandex Search Engine. It's a Russian Internet provider search engine that prizes privacy and being anonymous. I love that. It's one of the most popular search engines over there and I can see why. I can easily find what I'm looking for. I've gotten better results that Google! And, above all else, it's private. Highly recommended."
