Link of the Week – DuckDuckGo

dreamstimefree_217130Recently, I jokingly mused on Facebook about whether the government would red-flag me for Googling subjects such as how to crack vaulted safes. A librarian friend of mine commented about this nifty search engine that doesn’t track you. (Bless you, Pam!) DuckDuckGo boasts of better search results while protecting your privacy. Win!

  1. What a great link! Hmmmm, not to be tracked on something- what a novel, fresh idea. Privacy is nothing but a distant memory and we did it to ourselves. Sigh.
    I’ve researched everything from biological and chemical warfare to portable nuclear weapons and terrorists groups……..they haven’t carted me off, yet. I’m sure they peek to see what I’m up to every now and then!

    DuckDuckGo is my fave.

    A.) You remain anonymous, which is really comforting when you’re looking up information about how much explosive can an armored car withstand for your as yet unpublished manuscript. “Really, Mr. NSA agent. I started out thinking pipe-bomb before I realize a slow acting poison would be a far better way…”

    B.) DuckDuckGo’s results are shockingly better.

    C.) Your search results aren’t tainted with Google’s new world order slant. Don’t believe this last one? Type in Drudge Report. On DuckDuckGo, you’ll only get Drudge Report and articles about it. On Google, Drudge Retort (a left-biased, poor imitation) pops up as the second or third link.

    I KNOW, Kristen. Another great thing is that there is no extraneous link that make you wonder how they ended up in your search. This search engine is phenomenal. PHENOMENAL!
