Onion.city – a search engine bringing the Dark Web into the light

Onion.city – a search engine bringing the Dark Web into the light by Mark Stockley.

From the post:

The Dark Web is reflecting a little more light these days.

On Monday I wrote about Memex, DARPA’s Deep Web search engine. Memex is a sophisticated tool set that has been in the hands of a few select law enforcement agencies for a year now, but it isn’t available to regular users like you and me.

There is another search engine that is though.

Just a few days before I wrote that article, on 11 February, user Virgil Griffith went onto the Tor-talk mailing list and announced Onion City, a Dark Web search engine for the rest of us.

The search engine delves into the anonymous Tor network, finds .onion sites and makes them available to regular users on the ordinary World Wide Web.

onion-city

Search and Access to Onion sites for Amusement ONLY! All of your activities are transparent to anyone capturing your web traffic.

If you need security and privacy, use a Tor client.

With that understanding: Onion City awaits your requests.

Is there a demand for an internal to Tor network search engine? Supported by internal to Tor advertising? Or is most Tor “marketing” by referral?
