Opera versions >12 uses Blink, yes, but that's just the rendering
engine. I can't remember what search engine it uses by default, but
that's easy to change anyway. There's a privacy policy on their webpage
if you want details.

Ralf mentioned Vivaldi - it uses Blink too, and is still under

it unusable, but that might have improved by now.
