FUTURE is a completely stand alone, open-source search engine that's focused on privacy and decentralization, so that any user can also self-host their own instance to contribute to a shared index of web pages accessible through any one of them. Given the small index that it currently has, it also works as a meta-search engine, mixing its own results with others from public Searx instances, to be capable of answering any request properly. Here is a small presentation that serves to show why FUTURE is different, better and how it accomplishes that.
The decentralization aspect of the search engine is a core feature as it allows anyone to expand the index and improve the service, while also increasing reliability by redundancy. Currently the main node is located at https://wearebuildingthefuture.com.
If you are planning to host your own instance, we strongly encourage you to consider using Uberspace as they offer an excellent service and instances for a fair price.
