DDG sucks. The only reason to ever use it is privacy. Well, they may as well fold the company now.

what about it sucks? The search results are fine for me. I was using it b/c I don't want to feed google any more ad revenue but it seems like DDG isn't as great as it was made out to be

To clarify, for those that did not read the article, this only applies to the Duck Duck Go mobile browsers, not the web site. The web site still blocks all trackers, but that wouldn't have been a good link-baity headline.

That said, the Duck should have been up front about it. However, am I surprised? No. They have to pay the bills somehow, and I never understood their business model. You can't make enough off advertising and affiliate links.

If you're looking for a private search (as opposed to a "privacy" browser) then onesearch.com is better than ddg.

But for privacy browsers... yeah, DDG is still "good"-ish... except for allowing exceptions for their corporate overlord.

Onesearch is a Verizon subsidiary, doesn't give me warm fuzzies know that another Verizon subsidary is Yahoo.
From now on I will only search the internet using wingless blind carrier pigeons.
