EpicSearch is ad-free and available at a nominal charge of $2.50/month. You can register an account here then activate your subscription by entering payment details in the Subscriptions section of your account.
We've waited as long as we could to start the subscription requirement, but now we need your support. Maintaining regular browser updates with a team of engineers is expensive as is operating our encrypted proxy network which is powered by 500+ servers around the world.
If you don't wish to subscribe, you can always change your default search engine to the free Yahoo in Epic's preferences (soon to be Yahoo's private search engine).
Please double-check the spelling of your email address and enter a password that's at least eight characters in length.
