Brave Browser bought a search engine, “promises no tracking, no profiling – and may even offer a paid-for, no-ad version”.
Good timing for clearing my tabs of other Brave related stuff. This PDF white paper describes the Brave Search Team’s plans — Goggles:
This paper proposes an open and collaborative system by which a community, or a single user, can create sets of rules and filters, called Goggles, to define the space which a search engine can pull results from. Instead of a single ranking algorithm, we could have as many as needed, overcoming the biases that a single actor (the search engine) embeds into the results.
