YaCy P2P - Decentralized Search Engine


In terms of key features, Yacy's decentralized nature means it is free from single point censorship and control. Each user has equal input to the indexing process, contributing to an ever-evolving and democratic search pool. This also means the software is highly scalable, with its performance only improving as the user base grows.

Moreover, Yacy boasts robust privacy protections — all users' searches are confidential and not subject to tracking. The platform also supports multi-language searching and offers advanced filtering options for even more refined results. With Yacy, users can experience a whole new level of control over their internet navigation.

With 2995 GitHub stars and the latest commit on 2023-07-27 the project looks healthy.
