DuckDuckGo is not open-source, but freeware?

I just found the source code repository: . The reference to GItHub is not specified in the description.

DDG is brilliant

about DuckDuckGo · ·

I really do love DDG. It's great to get away from Google due to their Privacy aspects and trying to track everything you do. DDG doesn't track your searches, has regional settings, themes, Image search etc. You must check out their 'Bangs' feature if you haven't already as well, so useful. A great search engine that has a refreshing privacy stance.


Love duckduckgo.

I switch over from google and it improve my productivity with the bangs.Not to mention the privacy it improve on. The info is a little outdated so I'll clean it up soon :)

I use this because of its promises but, it is hosted by Amazonaws that has servers in the USA, that probably have to record your IP due to legislation. Either way its better than going to google if you want privacy.
Small StartPage iconStartPage & Small ixquick iconixquick are safe alternatives as well

DuckDuckGo is the best search engine.

about DuckDuckGo and Google Search · ·

DuckDuckGo is the best search engine. It has more privacy, less spam, 0-click info, !bang, and tons of custimizations. Found it in October, never used Google again.


Awesome in every way

about DuckDuckGo · ·

Awesome in every way, like "MiddleOfNowhere" said a lot of attention is put to detail at DDG, many features I always wanted are included, like settings and separating results by meaning allowing more significant results. I even sended a mail with a few recomendations and "they" (single manteiner) responded right away!!
Simply awesome!!

Impresionante en todos los sentidos, como "MiddleOfNowhere" dijo, se pone un montón de atensión a los detalles en DDG, incluye muchas características que siempre he querido, como la posibilidad de configuración y la separación de resultados por significado dando resultados mucho más relevantes. Incluso envié un mail con algunas recomendaciones y "ellos " (el sitio lo mantiene una sola persona) respondieron de inmediato!
Simplemente impresionante!


DDG is great.

about DuckDuckGo and Google Search · ·

DDG is great. A lot of attention to detail, relevant results and goodies like "Zero Click Box" (will typically show the first paragraph from Wikipedia for a search term). Also, there's keyboard control, direct access to Wolfram Alpha features/results (e.g. for conversions) and what they call Bang! - these are keywords that will take you directly to certain sites.E.g., a query for "bbedit !alto" on DuckDuckGo will show BBEdit alternatives on, and "Matrix !amazon" will list Matrix-related products on I am using it as my default search engine now and only go to Google for "needle in a haystack" searches where every result matters. If you don't need the whole Autocomplete/Instant Search/Media Search Zoo from Google, this is a fast and reliable alternative.

I think it's great, specially for the privacy

about DuckDuckGo · ·

I use it for some days and I think it's great. Specially, if they keep their privacy promises.
