    ive used startpage search engine for a while ,and was under the impression that returned searches were google results
    ..........................................................
    Q: So, StartPage uses Google Web results. Is my privacy still protected?
    Completely. StartPage works under the same strict privacy policy as Ixquick; we don't store any personal data (like your IP address) and don't pass on any of this data to third parties, including Google. This way you will get Web results from the most popular search engine with the privacy protection from the world's most private search engine Ixquick.com.
    So while you can continue to get the search results you have grown accustomed to, you don't have to worry about your privacy anymore!
    Please note that when you watch a YouTube video, whether on StartPage or on any other site, your privacy protection will be the same as if you played it directly on youtube.com. YouTube will be aware that you are watching the video, and you may receive a YouTube cookie on your browser.

    ,however most searches through startpage ,are just totally inferior and nothing like the results you would get when searching direct through google .Why is this?
