How I Learned to Stop Worying about Google and Love DuckDuckGo

Google, Bing and other search engine make a search “bubble”, and only give you results in line with sites you already visited. This reduces the chance of finding interesting sites and narrows your view of the world wide web to a bubble: Escape your search engine Filter Bubble! http://dontbubble.us/

Google used to have a motto “don’t be evil”, that was a long time ago. Unless privacy is evil in Google’s world. Don’t wanna be tracked? http://donttrack.us/

So what alternatives do you have? My favourite is DuckDuckGo: http://duckduckgo.com/ I used to use Scroogle, but that only addresses the privacy issue since all results come from Google. DuckDuckGo is what MetaSearch used to be ten years ago: returning results from a wide range of search engines. DuckDuckGo is my weapon of choice, for sure! šŸ˜‰
