Google has ended all work on its censored Chinese search engine, a company representative testified on Tuesday.
“We have terminated Project Dragonfly,” said Karan Bhatia, Google’s vice president of public policy, at a hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The secret project was first revealed by the Intercept a year ago. The new search engine would have initially been offered as an Android app, and it would have reportedly blacklisted “websites and search terms about human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest,” according to the Intercept.
