    I see that DuckDuckGo are affiliated with Blekko, another company that is likewise trying to ensure privacy, security and innovation in the world of search engines.

    This could certainly be a useful project, and their list of recommended add-ons to browsers are also great. I myself have used AdBlock Plus for the past several months, and it really makes internet use more enjoyable.

    I personally won't go anywhere near a google sight, I have had them load junk on my computer too many times in the past. I stick with Yahoo which isn't much better, except that I know how to block everything on them. I don't really care if they track where I go, I have nothing to hide, it is the trying to get stuff on my computer all the time that really pi**es me off.

    Thanks. The Google behavior of exploitation, tracking and commercializing becomes more and more annoying and obnoxious. Especially since they overtook Youtube.

    Yes Google Tube is officially Shit!

    Do not use them, if you have something important to Upload, do it on another site, they will appreciate the content.

    Let Google tube can stick with their constant diet of movie previews, Obama Political Ads, Lego Star Wars movies made by 8 year olds, and last but not least. Drunk guys doing remakes of Star Trek episodes with beer bottles.

    Thumbs Up Ixquick, The World's Most Private Search Engine

    IxQuick is a dutch company providing the most anonymous search-engine in the world, at https://ixquick.com/

    It's a search engine gathering results from many other search-engines. What's great with IxQuick is that they've laid down a lot of work in ensuring that YOUR IP-address is NOT collected in their LOG's. They even have third-party revision-companies revisioning them, making sure what they claim is actually true.

    I tried converting to IxQuick for a while, but had a hard time letting go of google, which is, noone can deny it, an awesome service....
    .. BUT: It turns out IxQuick even hosts a google-proxy kind of: https://startpage.com/

    This is an anonymous shell upon google, providing the same privacy-assurances as IxQuick, but with google-results. (I really don't understand how google approves of this... but it seems they do...)

    AND: As with the IxQuick-searchEngine, you can choose to open the search-results in the "IxQuick-proxy", which is a HTTPS-proxy, and, being IxQuick, NOT at ALL recording your IP-address.

    So... for paranoid people like me: make https://startpage.com/ your start-page instead of google... (and install HTTPS-everywhere if you're in firefox).....

    ...of course,..... with EU enforcing more and more tyrannic/anti-free-speech-laws... this probably won't be allowed forever.... but "until it sleeps".... very much recommended......
