- BNC (software) -- A BNC (short for bouncer) is a piece of software that is used to relay traffic and connections in computer networks, much like a proxy.

Search engines ∞
Using alternate and meta search engines is one way to be one step away from untrusted search engines.
However, it still comes down to trusting that search engine.

Keep in mind your browser may keep history, so a compromised computer can fetch that data too.
