Brave's new tool lets you create and share your own search rankings

If you're concerned that the usual web search engines might be biased, don't worry — Brave thinks it can help. The company has introduced a beta Goggles feature for Brave Search (itself no longer a beta) that lets anyone set their own criteria for search rankings. You can refine a "politics" query to shift the focus to blogs instead of major news outlets, for instance. You can create, modify or use others' rankings just by running a search and tapping the "Goggles" button. You won't necessarily have to spend time fine-tuning your results, then. A community could also share Goggles to more consistently surface the sites it uses most often. Brave is pitching the tool as a foil to the algorithms Google and Microsoft's Bing use to prioritize some search results while downplaying others.
