- Vurdert til 5 ut av 5av Gogbog, 9 måneder sidenOne of the best alternative search engines, and criticisms of blacklisting/censorship the past month are to this date unfounded. Just try to do a search for any claimed blacklist sites.
- Vurdert til 5 ut av 5av Firefox-bruker 5460492, 10 måneder sidenThis extension does a great job of removing trackers, but it has one annoying problem. All too often, it turns itself off for a site, with an explanation that it's breaking the site. Um, no, it's not, and I turn it back on and everything works fine. I really wish it would let ME decide whether it's breaking the site so that I can turn it off. Please don't turn yourself off!
- Vurdert til 5 ut av 5av Maden, 10 måneder sidenDuckDuckGo is extremely useful and in my opinion essential when surfing the Web nowadays. I have been using Browser, Extension and Mobile App for the last Year now and it has made me feel safer and more secure when searching for things. Especially useful is the "burn" function for mobile devices, where you can delete all browser data with just one touch. I recommend this browser to anyone that wants to have a normal web experience while still being anonymous for any reason.

This isn't even the Search Engine. It's a Tracker Blocker built by the DDG team. This extension itself censors NOTHING, and the search engine itself is only "censoring" insofar that it dropped Yandex (Russian Search Engine) from it's regex filter.
"Google Clone"? Lol. Google tracks everything you search and personalizes search results to monetize you and put you in Filter Bubbles. That's DDG's real strength. It doesn't track users, it doesn't filter users, it only monetizes users through Contextual Advertising, and all of this is and was true before and after the Yandex debacle.
It's laughable how ignorant and stupid people who use FIREFOX of all browsers truly are. It's no surprise that Mozilla has been desperately trying to dumb down the browser if users can't even tell the difference between a search engine and a extension.
I don't even use this extension for Tracker blocking. I've been using uBlock ever since the Firefox Android update that blocks free use of extensions (cEnSoRsHiP!?!?!?!). Even so, I still use the search engine, and both the engine and this extension are still excellent ways to preserve privacy.
If ya'll still wanna get pandered by Brave/Yandex/Google, be my guest. I've been using DDG since 2019, and frankly I have no reason to switch.
