FAROO is a peer-to-peer web search engine that has no centralized index and crawler.
Each web page visited by users is automatically included into the distributed index.
Ranking of search results is based on a distributed usage statistics of the web pages visited by FAROO users, which leads to a more democratic, user centric ranking.
FAROO protects the privacy of the user by encrypting the search queries and its anonymizing distributed architecture.
The decentralized Peer-to-peer architecture scales with the Internet growth and requires no infrastructure and operational cost.
