We often think of Web data as being free. But information is only free if you can find it. People need to own the means of search.
PeARS is a search engine run by all and for all. Data and algorithms are built and shared by the people who will use them. Everybody who browses the Web is a potential contributor.
We want the search engine you use everyday to run efficiently on your laptop. No server farms needed!
We are strong supporters of Free Software and Open Source philosophy. Our source code is open and whole-heartedly welcome contributions.
