DuckDuckGo

duckduckgo-logoThere are few good internet search engines… Well, I don’t care much about the studies that prefer one over others in term of speed, indexing, search depth…. After all, I quickly find what I’m looking for using any. Though, if you’re into Google’s, using Google Search will enrich your experience. The same can be said about Bing from Microsoft…

I’d like to invite you here to give DuckDuckGo a try – https://duckduckgo.com/

DuckDuckGo is an Internet search engine that emphasizes protecting searchers’ privacy… It distinguishes itself from other search engines by not profiling its users and by deliberately showing all users the same search results for a given search term.

So, if you prefer the results to be tailored based on your internet history, this one isn’t for you.

For me, I just want a search tool only! Google Search and Bing are bloated with stuffs that I don’t use or care about – especially on phone. Talking about phones, I believe DuckDuckGo mobile application is still in need for more work.

What is your preferred search engine?

  1. I just love the name DuckDuckGo! I usually opt for Google. I am not a fan of Bing, and I can’t tell you exactly why. I’m just not comfortable with it. I like privacy aspect you mentioned here. I might have to give DuckDuckGo a whirl!

  2. Duckduckgo has been caught with a tracking cookie and their CEO used to make money off selling user data. I rather stick to scandal free StartPage.com

    • Thank you, Lopy. I spent good amount of time searching but I haven’t found anything related to what you have claimed here. I totally appreciate your reference(s) if any.

      I like the idea of StartPage.com but I haven’t got time to fully test it. Additionally, I could understand that it mainly uses Google results which might not be preferred by many.

      Honestly, DuckDuckGo was first introduced to me through Firefox as it’s one of FF’s default search engines.

  3. I forget to use DuckDuckGo. I open FireFox and Google after I boot up my laptop but I use Google for most of my searches. I have ad blockers on FireFox, Google, and the Edge.

    • Thank you, Franci. I know… DDG was there on Firefox for long time but I noticed it recently.
      Yet I don’t like ad blockers extensions a lot, they are handy. I never get bothered by ads though!

    • Wow, congratulations on the new notebook, Darlene. I’m happy to hear it. Yes, as I said, if you’re more into Google’s, using their Search will enrich your experience for sure.

      I hate Windows because they are trying to force us to use their products – I’m already use a lot of them! Anyway, I believe it’d be better experience to sign with your MS account on Windows 10 computers. You are still able to disable most of their preinstalled apps – directly or indirectly.
