The French search engine Qwant, has launched a News portal.
On the News homepage, users can see a grid of the hottest news topics. Clicking on a topic will take users to a page containing a list of news and blog articles written about that topic.
Alternatively, users can type a query into a search bar, with results coming up in a list, displaying a title, thumbnail image, time of publication and short description.
This is not the only new feature Qwant has launched in recent months. Earlier this year, Qwant launched a child-friendly version designed for children aged between 3 and 12 years old.
Qwant is a French search engine that was launched in 2013. Unlike most search engines, it doesn’t track users’ online activities. It handled 1.6 billion searches last year – less than half the number that Google deals with in one day.
