    I have seldom used it since it is not important to me. Google, Bing and Yahoo are the best!

    Results are great when you search for queries related to scripting, server setup, etc. Most of the time it will give you the correct answer right on top of the results. For example: nginx rewrite or php remove last character string

    I have never heard about this search engine before! In my opinion, it is very simple. Nevertheless, Google is still one of the best search engines.

    also google is busting all competitors with its instant results.
    just tried typed "bloomberg" in both the seach engines (duck duck and google) and clearly google eats the competition.

    DuckDuckGo is an Internet search engine that emphasizes protecting searchers privacy and avoiding the filter bubble of personalized search results. DuckDuckGo distinguishes itself from other search engines by not profiling its users and by deliberately showing all users the same search results for a given search term. DuckDuckGo emphasizes getting information from the best sources rather than the most sources, generating its search results from key crowdsourced sites such as Wikipedia and from partnerships with other search engines like Yandex, Yahoo!, Bing, and Yummly.

    As far as I knew, it was a small, scrappy start-up that had nevertheless managed to make its mark in the world of search, dominated as it is by the vast and all-knowing Google.

    Frustration with Google might be at a high at the moment with tax-dodging, increasing dominance of search (and now the mobile web) and removing ads on the right hand side at the expense of organic search results.

    Therefore I was intrigued by the comments from DuckDuckGo fans on Jason Tabeling’s article on whether you should be paying more attention to DuckDuckGo, urging people to switch to DuckDuckGo and discover the ‘real internet’. How would searches from such a small engine stack up against Google’s, in everyday situations? Would using DuckDuckGo be an exercise in frustration, or a revelation?

    I decided to test the waters, using it as my ‘go-to’ browser every day for a week.

    I'd only heard of DuckDuckGo this evening when I saw it mentioned here so I looked at it - didn't like it, to be honest. It looks like a child has drawn the characters. I think that they've got a long way to go before even thinking of overtaking Google as the main search engine.

    DuckDuckGo has some good features. For example the ad free search and regional search. I have used it on some occasions and have found it useful. Especially when you want to make "narrow searches". Then it has worked better than other search engines.

    I too seen traces of duckduckgo referral traffic in Google Analytics. But, haven't yet checked its performance. Does they have any webmasters or analytics accounts like Google.
