Internet & Networking Remember when Altavista was the search engine? Or Yahoo? They stuffed their search pages with useless, distracting crap, and using them became unpleasant. And then, bam, along came Google, with a simple, clear search page and uncluttered search results. However, now that Google has become this massive behemoth, tracking our every move, and tailoring our search results, leading to only being fed those pages you agree with - isn't it time for something new? Something simple? It might be, and you've undoubtedly heard of them: DuckDuckGo. I'm switching. Update: Just got an email from Gabriel Weinberg, the guy behind DuckDuckGo. The OSNews !bang (!osnews) is now live!

Excellent article, thanks for the info.

I've been using Scroogle in https mode after reading a comment on here once - it works well with Firefox and integrates with Safari using Glims. I just visited DuckDuckGo on both and there are identical integration options for it - an addon in Firefox and a couple of options for Safari, including Glims, so I'll certainly be giving it a go. I like how it gives you the "Add to (Browser)" link, very nice.
