If I search for something provided by the AUR, at the moment I use
startpage or seldom google ;).

They have their weak points too, but they seemingly remember others who
searched for the same. "The same" seems not to be just a keyword, but
the resume of searches with different keywords, there seems to be some
kind of AI and ignorance of data protection behind the search
