DuckDuckGo a possible Challenger to Google?
DuckDuckGo is an emerging Search Engine that was launched in September 2008. In a market which Google dominates, can this new search engine make an impact?
What is DuckDuckGo
It is a relatively new Search Engine whose primary focus is user privacy. It promises not to track it’s users. Users are not profiled, and all users are given the same results for a given search term.
The About page makes bold statements. Offering to provide a smarter search, providing results in fewer clicks.
It is highly community driven, the search engine is built on contributions not just algorithms.
If you browse around their site, you’ll see thats it’s clear that Privacy is a major objective of theirs, perhaps a dig at Google.
So far trying it out with technical search queries, I noticed a generally good quality of search results.
Give it a go. We would love to hear if it provides genuinely smarter results!
