@mdrockwell @numericcitizen I switched to DDG long ago too, and Google couldn’t pay me to go back to them. The control that corporation has over content — and the internet — is terrifying. Unless you use something else you see what Google wants, and it’s about to get worse.

@peterimoore I recall an article expressing concern that DDG surfaces extremist content if your search doesn’t have enough legitimate results or isn’t common enough, but I haven’t experienced that. I treat Google as a backup for search and maps, and don’t often have need for it.



  1. @scojjac I’ve never encountered that either, seems implausible to me. Same as you I only use Google as a backup if I don’t get good results from DDG — which isn’t often — and it’s a quick !g away. DDG’s !bangs functionality is absolutely stellar, I can’t imagine not using it.
