Yandex

I just (re)discovered Yandex again.
Often referred to as the russian google, it's made it's way in leaps and bounds since I first found it years ago. It was originally very clunky and slow, but someone's been busy.

There's proper search engine which tends to find a whole lot more stuff than other engines.

A mail client, good for less secure stuff. I dunno who to distrust more, American companies, or Russian companies.

A cloud service which is cleanly accessible by linux (unlike google drive), but again, distrust arrises. For sensitive files I'm using encryption, not that it matters, it just makes it a tad more difficult for them to probe into my shit. Webdav is the shit.

And they're working on a browser. I've had a looksee at the beta version, and there's not much difference against chrome or firefox. It does, however, natively return to russian language, which a bit of a pain if you want to get anywhere quickly.


Currently I'm using the cloud service mainly. It's hit me as being a crapton more user friendly. But as I said, encryption, use it.

I've also tried Japan's naver services, but they're just as backassed as google and yahoo. A lot of stuff I try to search for there comes up missing or garbled. Their mobile chat is probably one of the best alternatives to skype I've used yet, though.


Anyone else using yandex or others? Tips?

I also discovered yandex music. Free plays without logging in.
