DuckDuckGo Reviews

Surprisingly just as good, if not better than Google

about DuckDuckGo and Google Search · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

I held off switching from Google to DuckDuckGo for a very long time (years), as I was always sure that Google would be able to offer better search results in exchange for my privacy, however as time went by, I wasn't comfortable with the vast amount of information I gave google with so little return in better results — so I tried DuckDuckGo, after a week or so, I didn't find any issues with results, and perhaps once a month, out of the thousands of searched I do, do I ever have to go to google. So considering that, I'm very pleased that I was able to maintain my privacy with no compromises. Well done.

DDG is brilliant

about DuckDuckGo · · Helpful Not helpful

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.

Lovin' it

about DuckDuckGo · · Helpful Not helpful

I've been a user on duckduckgo for some time now, I am now a Translation Manager, as I contribute a lot on that area.

I've started using DDG because it doesn't track you, nor can it give the government information about you.

Simple to use, and everyday there's a new feature.

I'm really really lovin' it.

Great search engine

about DuckDuckGo · · Helpful Not helpful

I've found DuckDuckGo to be a great search engine, and what's unique is the bang feature. Also, believe that the search results are great because they have a cool zero click information.

Give it a go!

And what i love about DDG is that i can search on google just by typing !g but it lacks an image search function (even though you can type !i for google images).

Best search ever! This search engine hits not a homer but a grand slam!

about DuckDuckGo and Google Images, Google Search · · Helpful Not helpful

I was in the business of using Google until I realized that they tracked me. That disturbed me very much as I look up... VERY personal things (will not mention them). So basically I had a terrible experience with Google Talk, Plus, and Gmail that sent me deleting my account, and never coming back. I thought I would have to be tracked by Bing...

Until I found DuckDuckGo.

It ran well, searched well, didn't track, was completely customizable, and more. It was awesome. I loved it at first site. To this day I always use DuckDuckGo. It replaces Search, Images, Sites, Blogs, lots. It runs so well and it deserves to be the top search engine ever, it should beat Google in popularity.

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars. Amazingly wonderful.

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 · · Helpful Not helpful

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 · · Helpful Not helpful

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 alternativeto.net, and "Matrix !amazon" will list Matrix-related products on Amazon.com. 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

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

DDG is awesome because, among other things, it allows me to search with every search engine including Amazon, Wikipedia, or even Google.
