With that being said DuckDuckGo is a serious contender for many users default search engine, but for me I found it to lack the laser like accuracy in some of innovative features which detracted from the total search experience. It is extremely customizable and I am sure they have found their niche to keep them going until they can deliver this accuracy in all features.
Tried it, didn’t like it. What scares me the most is the feeling that I (as most of people) have come to associate search with Google to the point where I cannot differentiate between them. How can I switch to a different search engine when all I do is “google”, not search, on the Internet? This sucks.
