Dragonfly, it seems, is officially dead. Probably.
The controversial Chinese search engine previously in development by Google that raised privacy, censorship, and human rights concerns is finally, officially, no more — at least according to Karan Bhatia, Google’s vice president of global government affairs and public policy.
In a July 16 congressional hearing, Bhatia assured Senator Josh Hawley that the project is over.
“Is [Project Dragonfly] active right now?” asked Hawley.
