Gigablast is a lesser-known search engine that has been in operation since 2000. It prides itself on its independence from larger corporations and search engine conglomerates, which allows it to operate free from corporate interests and biases. The Gigablast search algorithm is designed to provide users with highly relevant search results by using a combination of keyword-based and link-based algorithms. It also has advanced search features that allow users to search by file type, language, and domain. Additionally, the search engine offers a "site search" feature that enables users to search within a specific website. The Gigablast interface is simple and straightforward, making it easy for users to navigate and find the information they need. The search engine's focus on user privacy is also a notable feature, with no user data being collected or sold to third-party companies. Moreover, Gigablast offers an API that developers can use to integrate the search engine into their own applications. While Gigablast may not have the widespread recognition of other search engines, its commitment to independence and privacy make it an attractive option for users who value those principles.
