We have no external investment and we will keep it that way; This allows us to stay on the right path, in our policies, no tracking, no invasive advertising, no sale of data, and we always emphasize this to users in our communications, but we always need your help, your help allows us to grow , you are indispensable.
Bookmarks of Midori
Although these bookmarks are blocked so that they do not change, the user can modify them so that the sites of interest are there, however, through intelligent suggestions, these bookmarks will change to offer unique promotions for Midori users taking into account the policies. We ask users not to change them as it is a way to support the development of Astian products and services.
Currently, the Midori light browser has AstianGO as its default search engine, which is fast and provides accurate results, and is the youngest search engine on the market. We will continue working on it, even if we have an agreement with other search engines, it is something that we always make clear.
Why not Google? We know that financially having Google as allies would give us a boost in every sense, personnel development, hiring, I+D, etc., but just as it benefits us, it ties us to Google’s will and we are not looking for that, we are looking for technological independence, in addition We would go against our values and principles since we would give up the privacy of our users and this is one of the aspects that our users love the most, we care about them before an economic benefit.
Remember: IN ASTIAN YOU ARE NOT THE PRODUCT
