Swisscows also deems itself "family-friendly", with explicit results entirely omitted. The website's servers are based in underground data centers under the Swiss Alps.
Swisscows uses Bing for web search, but has also built its own index for the German language edition. It also has shopping search, music search (powered by SoundCloud), and a language translator powered by Yandex.
