Presearch launches browser extension to meet growing consumer demand for easy-to-use private browsing.
Toronto, April 18, 2019 — Presearch, the open, decentralised search engine has today released the Presearch browser extension for Chrome, Firefox, and Brave browsers. The browser extension lets anyone search privately, without sharing or compromising their personal data.
The browser extension permits access to Presearch’s engine alongside more than 80 other resources, including Google, Wikipedia, Amazon, and Facebook. Community members can earn rewards in the native cryptocurrency token, PRE, for searching and referring new users. PRE tokens can then be used to purchase advertisements on the platform.
The browser extension was developed in response to significant community demand for powerful yet private search. To date Presearch has attracted more than 1 million registered users and 250,000 monthly active users.
“Our community has grown to more than a million members in under a year, showing that searchers want change; more choice, more privacy and more rewards,” said Colin Pape, founder of Presearch. “The new browser extension makes it even easier to switch to Presearch and start earning cryptocurrency when you search. We developed the extension because the community kept requesting it, and we’re grateful to all who are helping improve Presearch as it continues to grow and evolve.”
Presearch is advised by Anthony Di Iorio, Co-Founder of Ethereum and Founder of Decentral; Rich Skrenta, Founder and CEO of Blekko (acquired by IBM Watson); and Addison Cameron-Huff, a leading technology lawyer in the blockchain industry.
Presearch is building an open, decentralised search engine that rewards community members for their usage, contribution to, and promotion of the platform. The platform does not store searches or identifying information, and allows users to select their preferred search engines.
