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!

... with the bang syntax giving command-line style in-roads to OSNews, Board Game Geek, the d20 SRD, Bulbapedia, Career Builder, Monster, DeviantArt, and Youtube? Fantastic!

Now to suggest two more and replace the Bing default in IE with a brand new search engine...
