Kagi is a paid alternative to ad-supported search engines like Google and DuckDuckGo. It has recently revised its pricing model, reducing the cost for a plan with unmetered searches from $25 per month to $10.

Kagi boasts the following (and more) features:

  • Blocking or boosting specific domains in your search results
  • “Lenses”, which are individual setting profiles (e.g. region locks, domain whitelists) that can be applied to search queries
  • All of the Bangs that DuckDuckGo has (e.g. type “!yt” in front of your query to immediately search on youtube.com)
  • Universal Summarizer, which works with any website, PDF document, YouTube video and more

This blog post goes into full details about Kagi’s capabilities.

      I’ll chime in and say that I spent a day in a half looking up a weird Python library issue on DDG and Google and had no luck without searching the exact error message and looking at like 7 different results.

      To test Kagi I searched using the vague search term I initially started my round of hunting on the other engines. The stack overflow page with the answer was the first result. I know it’s not a perfect test, but in my few days with it, I’ve had FAR more luck finding things in any topic compared to other search engines.
