Duckduckgo pretends to be not evil. It makes "oh hey, just trust me!" claims.
Just like Google.
2019-07-27 -- Some time ago I learned they've been funding Bad Guys: https://duckduckgo.com/donations
- For example, Demand Progress. Who also get money from the Open Society Foundations (Soros).
- For some commentary, see DuckDuckGo Is Funding Your Enemies.
Removing duckduckgo URL tracking ∞
As of 2014-05-21, userscripts.org is down. Try http://userscripts.org:8080/scripts/show/107272
I have no idea what I'm doing, but my edit worked.
FIXME - This does not work! Mousing over an item shows the proper URL, but actually visiting it will still go through the modified duckduckgo URL. Fuck!
