Tom Wood has spent the past year using DuckDuckGo instead of Google for his web searches. He lists six reasons why he could never go back and many of them are quite compelling.
I’ve used DuckDuckGo occasionally, but have never decided to give it a proper trial. Now that Apple has added it as an optional default search engine in iOS, I think I’ll finally give it the testing it deserves. I might not stick with it for a year like Tom Wood has, but I’ll at least give it a few weeks, which should be sufficient to determine whether I could see myself using it full time.
