Rivals of google showing fewer ads and more solitude:
The name Google has evolved so synonymously with an online search that it’s evolved into a verb. Like to uncover something? Google it.
But a fresh crop of search engines is bringing a shot at the online search market, vowing to deliver an engine with more customizable alternatives, rarer ads and more care for users’ solitude. While there’s little chance of any of these upstarts becoming the next No. 1 any moment shortly, a handful has seen a little but devoted audience peeking for an option to the internet that Google maintains.
One of the most recent participants is Neeva, co-founded by Sridhar Ramaswamy, who devoured years operating as a senior vice president of promotion at Google.
