Internet & Networking "I think most search results would benefit by some form of instant answer. DuckDuckGo has a lot of goodies, but I think we're only scratching the surface on what can be done there. That's why today we're announcing DuckDuckHack: an open source platform to create instant answer plugins for DuckDuckGo. Think of them like add-ons for Firefox." Pretty cool idea.

Have been using it for 18+ months now. It's pretty good especially the ! shortcuts.

Results are not as good as Google but good enough. My main reason is to get rid of Google, I don't trust them that much, especially after Schmidt's comments, the recent change in terms of use change and the whole mindset of Google as displayed in cases like wifi scanning to Oracle's lawsuit. (well I did not trust them 2 years ago even befor all the shenanigans)

Love the https and do not leak feature, don't like the missing results on blogs and important websites ( dont understand why they miss them ) but as said: they have my vote!
