@cdevroe It grew into an amazing service. When I can’t find what I’m looking for I use the Startpage bang and get Google results without the tracking. The bang feature is one of my personal favorites on DDG.
@bix 75% is a lot. What are you searching for? (Nevermind, I'm not Google, I don't want to know, that's the point of Duck.com)
@cdevroe I switched earlier this year and haven't had any issues with results. (Maybe my searches are too pedestrian to fit into all the people who seem to be having issues.)
@cdevroe I've been using DDG for years now and have the whole family on it. No issues though the kids' teachers sometimes are confused when they say to use the "first Google hit" since DDG will return something else as first.
@vishae I wasn’t aware they had one to begin with, that’s why I usually go for !s when the need arises.
@vishae Different search engines. DDG gets the results from a number of sources (including Bing and Yahoo) and StartPage is, according to them, Google without the trackers.
You can’t beat Google when it comes to online search. So we’re paying them to use their brilliant search results in order to remove all trackers and logs. The result: The world’s best and most private search engine.
