Alternative search engine

I used to use mainly Google as everyday search engine, and I'm quite satisfied with for my daily usage. Nevertheless I do it knowing that everything is traced, and that the filtering of web has already started under pressure of governements around the world. It is maybe time to start searching alternative search engine in the case where....
I've not searched a lot, but I found a promising peer-to-peer based search engine called YaCy...

"YaCy is a free search engine that anyone can use to build a search portal for their intranet or to help search the public internet. When contributing to the world-wide peer network, the scale of YaCy is limited only by the number of users in the world and can index billions of web pages. It is fully decentralized, all users of the search engine network are equal, the network does not store user search requests and it is not possible for anyone to censor the content of the shared index. We want to achieve freedom of information through a free, distributed web search which is powered by the world's users."

I let you discover it...and find other ones.
