Protection and collaboration goes beyond private search

When we established our own Findx desktop browser project we had a great collaborative exchange with Alex Kontos (by him a coffee).

Since we stopped actively developing our desktop browser, it is a great pleasure to continue our relationship with Alex and the Waterfox project.
