行鴨 Duckduckgo [Privacy pt.2]

I decided that my second step would be to find a replacement for Google Search, as it logs all your searches and links it to your account (if logged in to your Google account) and your ip. All this info is stored to use as targeted advertising and sold to 3rd party companies.

One answer: Duckduckgo. I have known about this search engine for a good while, but it wasn't good enough last I tested it out, but it is now. This search engine does not log or share personal information. They do still use cookies, not for tracking it's users, but to store settings, if they are set by the user. They also do store some searches, but not in an way that can trace their users, and they do not log ip's. What Duckduckgo collect is data used for mistyped words and such, so they can correct words their users misspell. Important part, nothing will identify their users. This being a search engine with privacy in mind and the best of it's kind, it was a fast decision for me to take. It was a bit hard to get used to this search engine in the start as it doesn't show results the same way as google does it, but close to. It took me around three-four days to get used to Duckduckgo and for me not to use google search at all, that I did more than a few times the first two days. ^^
