Hi. Is anyone familiar with the search engine DuckDuckGo?

I don't know much about it except that it's a search engine that supposedly doesn't track you.

That's what caught my eye when I found it on the web. Wonder if that's true.
Thanks,
Terri

I think it's true, but their search feature misses things that
Google finds. Not that Google is as good as it used to be
searchwise because it isn't.

While the search engine may not track you, I'll bet your ISP does.

Maybe, but I'll bet my tiny little local ISP won't target me with ads wherever I go!
