Browser for the masses

Beitragvon inscannable » Sa Jan 06, 2018 4:17 pm

I am new to Yacy, which is such a great project.
I was wondering if there is a way to design a very user friendly browser, maybe based on chromium, that would automatically run a Yacy node in the background and use it as its default search engine.
This node would crawl every visited website.
Of course, the private mode would shut it off.

Dooble, even in its new version does not meet my expectations.

Any ideas ?

You can compile a package containing Firefox + Yacy or Chromium + Yacy. It's easy to set Yacy as the default search engine for most browsers.

Browser integration:
After searching, click-open on the default search engine in the upper right search field of your browser and select 'Add "YaCy Search.."'


Next you just need a little script that can add every visited page to your crawler.
