Recently, I have come across some people who were saying that the Browser named “DuckDuckGo” is better than “Google” . I have been using Google Browser for a very long time. Can you tell me why I should go for using the earlier said Browser?

DuckDuckGo is currently one of the named Browsers in India among the youth. It is because Google makes cache out of the previous searches you might have made and can sell it to any third party. While DuckDuckGo doesn’t do anything like this, it doesn’t collect any data like IP address, browser data, etc. DuckDuckGo works even faster than Google. But the drawback is that it doesn’t show the personalized searches. Now the decision rests upon you.

For users who are new to computers, DDG or DuckDuckGo is not a web browser. It is one of those search engines that you can use to search the internet for contents that you want just like Google and Bing. Google is the default search engine for the Google Chrome web browser while Bing is from Yahoo!. Just like with Bing, DuckDuckGo does not have its own web browser.

They are just search engines used by different browsers to search online contents. DuckDuckGo is a little bit different from other search engines because it doesn’t profile its users and it shows all users the same search results for a given search terms. It highlights protecting searchers’ privacy and avoiding the filter bubble of personalized search results.

It also highlights returning the best results instead of the most results producing those results from more than 400 individual sources as well as crowd-sourced websites like Wikipedia and other search engines like Yandex, Yahoo!, and Bing. Among its features include:

  • Social media bio – DuckDuckGo allows you to see the social media profiles of people without leaving the search engine.
  • App store search and alternative apps search
  • Shorten and expand links
  • Generate passwords
