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!

Member since:

They're very open to suggestion of these things. Partly out of cheek I even proposed an automatic American English to International/British English (reinserting the u's, ize to ise, tyre not tire, encyclopaedia not encyclopedia &c.) translator, and they were very keen to try it. Also, when we say 'they' you contact them and - currently - get personal replies from the boss. Its nice and personal.
