    It's the usual case: useless app with allegedly better privacy and ethics. Slow as hell, local search doesn't work, multilingual search not supported... Maybe 20 years ago it would be a bit but it just does not live up to nowadays standards. Why can't someone make a real thing for once?

    The idea of Qwant is excellent, however the Qwant app crashes while typing anything for a search, immediately taking my Android phone back to an almost blank app screen. Suspected malware attached by Google Play Store.

    I really wanted to like this app but it simply doesn't work. It's a search engine that doesn't search, and when it does rarely work you cannot click on anything as it simply freezes, it is completely useless and I'm struggling to see the function of it?! Annoyingly, back to Google I go. Scrap it and restart.

    This app was fine until the previous update, when it lost all my open tabs (50+). That was really bad. This latest update lost my tabs, bookmarks, history, basically all the app data with no warning. Not acceptable. I need my browser to be reliable. Not huge fan of the new interface either, though I might have gotten used to it eventually. I liked the privacy features, though the search results aren't as relevant as Google's. The update wipe was the last straw. I'm uninstalling and switching to something else.

    Great app and I find Qwant the best alternative to google for people who cares about privacy. But here are the improvements, the App needs: -There should be an option to follow our favourite topics by searching them in the search bar and have them in the news feed. -The UI can have a better appearance. When these simple improvements are done, will definitely give 5 stars as the app really has potential!

    This was fantastic until I saw how much it started to lag and freeze up. I mean, I grew up with dial up, so I am no stranger to waiting patiently. But this was kind of annoying. The idea behind it (privacy and ethics) is what gives it 3 stars. I want to see this app improve- rooting for you!

    Great idea in theory. I want to get away from Google, but unfortunately their search bar is so fast and easy, switching to this was cumbersome. It would have been tolerable, but now it's just freezing or crashing entirely.

    This is by far the best browser available on the App Store. Easy to use, very customisable and lots of privacy settings options. You're not fixed to Qwant Search in the browser either, you're free to install any search engine you prefer. 10/10.

    Most of it is good but I am sick and tired of bloody American shite "hot trends" every time I open the app. You can try to stop it happening and even save a web page so it supposedly doesn't - that doesn't work because they still appear. Can't be bothered with yet more American 'news' when I open something. Until this bug is fixed I can't use qwant any more.

    I was extremely satisfied with it until a few days ago. An update made it impossible to come back to the precedent pages, could no longer use the Quant search options for specific words or phrase, could no longer have mh historic of searches nor my bookmarks... I had to uninstall the app. Very disappointed because it was great before.

    I was intrigued immediately "Privacy and Ethics" Until I saw the permissions required. The developer that prides itself on privacy to its users, question why so many permissions? Modifiy/delete/read storage, Take pics/vids& record audio, change audio settings, Precise location access sync settings, Control NFC, receive data from internet, Download files WITHOUT notification, connect/disconnect/view Wifi, full network access. No thanks uninstalling.

    Qwant claims to not track location or browser history of their users. If it was really true, I couldn't see my location below of qwant search bar. It was pretty surprising when I saw 'India' below its search bar. Thus, I think they collect users' information, location but they don't share it. The app is based on firefox browser itself. The firefox is known for using high CPU and battery usage. Firefox is even worse than chrome 👎

    A great alternative to Google although I use both search engines for different reasons. it's amazing, and not in a good way, how much Google filter search results. As an example, controversial health related topics, Qwant offers results from both sides of an argument. Google? Nope, only a highly sanitized set of results that they want to you to see.

    Great App. Decided to change from my usual, when I found the privacy, less than private. So glad I found Qwant. It's easy to set up, slicker to use and FASTER..heaps FASTER. Add on the fact your info is kept private and not harvested it's win win.! Just wish pro version could be a little bit cheaper..!

    It's so nice to once again have a search engine that's really useful. No search bubbles. Searches actually provide links related to search request. I started paying attention to research results of most popular search engines. Not unusual to have as few as 6 - 10 out of 20-30 links that relate to request. Repeated links can be 20 - 70% of returns. Algorithms are geared towards sales even if not related to search. AND PRIVACY FEATURES are real not BS.

    Was fantastic until they added hot trends, and now it takes three minutes to load every time, or doesn't work at all, freezes, closes. I went from love to hate with this app. No known way to disable hot trends. Who wants a privacy browser with plebe news suggestions? Qwant would do well to understand their consumers better.

    Well, I like Qwant and I also always use Firefox, but I do not see a benefit of installing another Firefox. I'm a bit disappointed as I expected this would be a Qwant app that would be more responsive than a browser search. Especially when using Qwant maps I would like to have a non browser app.

Good job devteam! No dark theme. Funny guys!

    Qwant has automated, "context-based (a la Google)" ads served by Microsoft above the organic results on the SERP, like Google. Not only that, but those ads use a totally separate policy. It may only be when accessed from particular geolocations/countries. That aside, Qwant is a very noble effort containing good technology.

    Pour la version antérieur, impossible de zoomer avec la nouvelle version. Tues, Jan 2020 Hello Qwant, although Qwant browser is my default browser for a year, since few days - on the mobile only - all links to open would go to Mi browser which is Chrome. I'm unhappy. Example for the Markor app, and on wbsites too, but also with my saved & downloaded docs, now systematically all links go to select Google Chrome browser. Prior, it would offer to select between Brave, Qwant & Mi browser.

    The browser reminds me of Firefox, in that it takes longer than it should to load anything. I looked and saw it is based on Firefox. I'll be uninstalling this app, but use the search engine where I can.

    Good application but I need to report that it crashed 3 or 4 times while I was surfing a website for Europe weather forecast. Can anyone fix the bug and it can be the browser memory rendering for java and graphic display which is low.

    If you're app is so private, why then do you need all phone data?? Why is this update "based on Firefox v.63" with no depth of further information?????? FF has all but catered to an unreasonable search and abuse against privacy, far worse than GoOgle...

    Not what I expected. I hoped this might not be as America-centric as Google, but it's just as bad. The search results still show American ones first, & the language settings don't even include an option for English.

    After the implosion of Startpage, and concerns about Duckduckgo also having ad links, Qwant seemed to be a safer alternative. France is still part of western spy alliances, but is also part of a country and union with strong privacy protections - your threat model may vary. Problem though? Qwant may be struggling with new interest, or my old phone the more likely culprit. Either way, Qwant loads way slow. Might be good to have a lite version, like on the website?
