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!

Until DuckDuckGo is available in my language, I have no interest in switching.

Yeah that's certainly a concern. Do they have a translation team somewhere?

As far as I know, there is no "they". It appears to be pretty much one man's website in Pennsylvania. See "Who runs DuckDuckGo?".

Even if there are more people in the company behind DuckDuckGo, it appears to be a very small company.
