The Ducks Are Always Greener ➝

Like Marco, I’ve switched to using DuckDuckGo as my default search engine. I’ve been pretty happy with it, but I do find myself appending !g or !i to the end of my search queries to view results from Google and Google Images. The vast majority of the time the search results are great, but those prefixes are another handy tool in DuckDuckGo’s arsenal that helps me find the results I’m looking for.

I’m also happy to be rid of another Google service and glad I have the option to move to a company that takes privacy a little more seriously. This leaves an old Gmail account and YouTube as the last two Google services that I continue to partake in. And, I can’t wait until I finally decide to cut those loose as well.
