Qwant vs. Google--may be a new topic of discussion when the Google Glass phase--calms down. Google has monopolized the world of search engines since the beginning of the internet search--technological era. Google searches, Google maps, Google-gmail, Google earth, Google-this-Goolge-that. The Googling options never end.
Now the French have launched a new search engine called Qwant. It is hard to compete with Google--the biggest web giant in the world--but the French are trying.
Although new, Qwant has dreams of greatness. The goal of this new French search engine is to revolutionize the way a user conducts research on the Internet. It takes great ambition to attack the most monopolized areas of the web. Yet, Jean-Manuel Rozan and Eric Leandri, are fight hard to have their stake.
Qwant is in the early stages of development and is in the process of creating quality standards as well as making their search engine usable in other languages.
Qwant, created a post on Wednesday, February 13. They hope to build a network of users--to poke holes in the Google empire domination. Their overall goal is to take over more than 90% market share of the Web search.
This is a huge gamble and Jean-Manuel Rozan is aware of the risk involved. These risk will not stop the two entrepreneurs from their plans.
