DuckDuckGo, using it almost for a year now.

DuckDuckGo, the minimalistic search engine

I started using about a year back, when I was looking for a good alternative. Duckduckgo is not more than it says that it is! A simplistic, but yet powerful and extensible (via DuckDuckGo Hacks) search engine. An engine that comes with the motto: “We believe in better search and not tracking.” and seems to promote users’ privacy. Explaining how our information flows around, without our consent, creating business revenues.

In general, although that the presented search results are not and can’t be as rich as of other engines, I still made it my default engine. With the provided !Bang I have everything I need for a sufficient and efficient search.

Reasons that I think someone could give it a try:

  1. DontTrack
  2. DontBubble
  3. DuckDuckGo Privacy Policy
  4. …certainly more…
