Completely on OS web search engine?


I am looking for software that searches the internet but that unlike Firefox runs out of the OS instead of a second site like Google.

Is there one, such as for Ubuntu or Fedora or Tails?

Have you looked at Goosh?

I like GUIs, but what I mean is, instead of using Google search, a program in one's own OS like Mint or Slackware, does the net metadata search. All records of the search remain in the OS.

Beniz, made software for Linux called "seeks".
Seeks is a decentralized p2p websearch and collaborative tool.

So is "seeks" what you're seeking?

At some point you have to get external data by some means. Either you have to go to a search engine or have a massive database that has a mirror of a search engine.
