"Ortigra is about giving individuals an alternative,
whilst at the same time offering users the ability to make a difference with our
Search & Sponsor mission, we are grateful to everyone who is helping us make
a change in the third world, many just do not have that disposable income that
they once had where donations could be given to charities, but now Ortigra
offers a new way of donating to charity whilst at the same time having a family
safe browsing experience all this is achieved by allowing individuals to change
their browsing habit."
Launched into public beta on the 11
th
June 2012 the search engine has
experienced a large user base in
Europe
and the US. The search platform is
considered family friendly as web indexes are filtered out from the results. The
Search & Sponsor campaign was set-up by Ortigra whereby every 100,000
searches Ortigra will sponsor a child in the third world. Children sponsored will
benefit from education fees & books, food, medical treatments and security for
the next year. Child poverty is still a major issue, with one in six children die
before the age of 5, 10million are on the brink of starvation, and over 4 million
are living with HIV/Aids. The recent milestone in popularity of Ortigra has meant
that 3 children to date are sponsored by the search platform.

"We are dedicated to advancement and offering an
alternative, the web is about innovation and giving people choices, Ortigra is
very committed to offering a more refined and safe search experience, This
means that there is a lot of change to keep up with. It is also crucial to consider
how changes will nourish through into Ortigra's upcoming reputation
comparative to that of its competitors."
The search engine is in development of "oSafe"; a filtering protocol which will
allow users to filter results based upon their belifs and what they deem is
unsuitable, oSafe is not only aimed at families and religious communities but
also businesses who want to increase the productivity of their employees. On
average in the US there is over
$759billion
lost in the economy per year
because of employees spending several hours on social networks. oSafe will
firstly be introduced to organisations across the UK during the start of
September, where schools and employers will have the ability to restrict
website and keywords through the oSafe DNS in real-time.

"Ortigra started development in Amsterdam back in
2010 as a project with I'mhalal.com the Islamic search platform that gained
popularity over 3million households. Since im'halal withdrew from the market,
for the 3million users we hope that Ortigra will be the alternative who want to
filter out results from their household. We saw a niche not just in regards to
parental additions but for also values that extend to ones belifs. I would like to
stress that Ortigra is against censoring the internet, but our aim is focused in
offering a service for families that sense of security when browsing the web. A
search platform is very much a map, if you can't locate something on a
map; rarely will you navigate yourself to the destination."
The platform is also developing semantic features which will behave in such a
way to improve search accuracy it will understand the users search phrase as a
query rather than a phrase. The company also has a social network on the way
which will enable networking between communities, individuals and businesses.
About Ortigra:
Ortigra started development in
Amsterdam

months ; the company has worked on various technologies and has several

7th November 2011
with 20,000
active beta users. The company is currently working on a transition in moving
the search platform to 100% clean energy servers, which should take effect on
