you work in it but havent heard of the totally private search engine called duckduck go??
is an Internet search engine
. It uses information from crowd-sourced sites (such as Wikipedia
) to augment traditional results and improve relevance. The search engine policy emphasizes privacy
and does not record user information.
With users free from being profiled, this search method effectively breaks out of "the filter bubble
" so that all users are given the same search results, not a set that has been tailored (filtered) to what the engine thinks the individual user wants to see. The company is based in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania
Some of the code of DuckDuckGo is free software distributed at GitHub
DuckDuckGo was founded by Gabriel Weinberg, an entrepreneur
whose last venture, The Names Database
, was acquired by United Online
in 2006 for $10 million.
Initially self-funded by Weinberg, DuckDuckGo is now occasionally advertising-supported.
The search engine is written in Perl
and runs on nginx
so much safer than google,
