One of the many reasons why I am moving away from Google

#2

Been a “Ducker” for about a year. Now all I need to do is drop Gmail. The issue wit that though - its tied into YouTube. In any event, Yeppers - working them off my system and I cant remember the last time I logged into FB.

And yanno what, I find I have a heck of a lot more time to dedicate to my other hobbies :wink:

Duckduckgo has been my search for ages. I’m slowly changing over to Protonmail from Gmail but its as I hit a site I have signed up with Google on. A slow process.

Yep DDG is awesome and great customisation tools.

Im still with Google because I have so much shit on drive, but looking for alternatives…

Like this one here for my searches:

The search engines I would suggest, other than the Big G:

DDG
Startpage
Qwant


#7

Startpage is awesome if you want a enhanced privacy search engine. The main sellpoint startpage is their server, in netherlands, unlike DDG server in US.


#8

The best thing about startpage is that it submits anonymous requests to Google on the user’s behalf so you get the immense power of the big G search engine without being trapped in their filter bubble.

DDG is nice but the results aren’t as conclusive as startpage, IMO.
