Qwant, a new vision of the web. Firefox optimized for Qwant is now available!

Qwant, the European Web search engine announced the immediate availability of Mozilla Firefox optimized for Qwant, a search experience designed to protect against tracking on the Web.

Unlike many other search engines, Qwant is expressly designed not to track users.

Firefox for Qwant now allows users to easily extend this protection against tracking to the whole Web. Qwant also applies strict neutrality rules to search results. Optimising the Qwant search engine for browsing in Firefox clearly demonstrates Qwant’s commitment to better privacy on the Web as a whole, and encourages more respectful and virtuous models for all parties involved.

Eric Léandri, co-founder of Qwant:

Qwant continues its rapid growth as the leading European search engine. Qwant’s growth demonstrates that it is possible to promote a responsible and respectful Web. Collaboration with a Web actor as important as Mozilla strengthens our choices and the promotion of our values. It is a clear sign that our vision for the Web is shared and supported by an ever-growing community of Web users.

Denelle Dixon-Thayer, Chief Business and Legal Officer Mozilla:

At Mozilla, being a mission-driven organization, we want to build an Internet that respects users, puts them in control, and creates and maintains trust. That includes promoting competition and innovation in search. It makes us happy when Internet users around the world can benefit from competition and innovation on the Web – as long as their privacy and security are safeguarded. We are pleased that people now have the choice to use Firefox optimized for Qwant.
