Brave Search is the world’s most complete, independent, private search engine. By integrating Brave Search beta into its browser, Brave offers the first all-in-one browser / search alternative to the big tech platforms. Brave Search beta is also available in other browsers, at https://search.brave.com

Interesting is that they have their own index. Claims no tracking and profiling.

Anonymous local search results will use the IP address broadcast by your device but without sharing that IP address and without storing it

Anonymous and aggregated metrics help us improve Brave Search for you and for the search community

Both are opt-out by default

It does look interesting and I'll keep my eye out on it.

An issue I have with it up front is that brave's search results are the same as google's search results, which sort of defeats the point of having an independent index.

Thank you for the link!

It will use google results if the results in brave's index are missing or are of poor quality and you have opped into the feature in settings.

Brave Search is beta now. We should wait to release, i think.
