Hello DuckDuckGo (and goodbye google.com)

DuckDuckGo logo

Yeah, I can now really do with less targeted advertising, a search homepage which isn’t like a giant ad itself, and Google mining my search queries to “enhance” their floundering me-too social network. Plus that other nasty business. So I’ve switched to DuckDuckGo. It’s like google.com of old, searches are anonymized, and it’s got a cooler name to boot.

The standard DuckDuckGo search provider for add-on for Firefox (the best darn browser around) can be found here.
