DuckDuckGo sheds light on Google's privacy claims and urges internet users to ditch Chrome.

DDG isn’t NEARLY as private as it should be, mind you. But IMO their points here are still valid.

Firefox+SearX is the answer.

Hardened Ficefox and a locally selfhosted SearX instance. 🧐

Hardened Ungoogled Chromium and a self hosted SearX instance for me!

But the default behaviour of self hosted searx is to expose the server’s IP to the actual search engines, do you use VPN or something at the server side?

DDG is not private and they have censorship.

yeah i think this is deliberate obfuscation of their own very recent issue with privacy wrt bing trackers that a security researcher blew the whistle on.
