The Little Duck that Could

I’ve written about DuckDuckGo before. It’s an alternative search engine that has, as item number one on it’s white board, “don’t track users”. My searches really aren’t all that interesting but I don’t like becoming a Google product all that much either. DuckDuckGo isn’t as fast, or frankly as good, as Google but it is narrowing the gap. They continue to evolve and most recently announced a redesign that you can try right now at

The search results, show in the below gallery, are very attractive and pretty good. I’m back to using it full time and it’s not annoying me. The features to search images, videos, and the dictionary are very clean. Best of all, I’m not anybody’s product. If you’ve not tried DuckDuckGo in awhile, go back. You’ll be surprised.
