DuckDuckGo is a relatively new search engine, and a wannabe competitor against Google. The search engine, which promotes itself as a “fair search” competitor to Google, has been extensively endorsed by sites like The New York Times, PCMag.com, and even on Search Engine Land, as a long-term threat to Google search dominance. It was one of the top 50 sites on TIME Magazine in 2011, and it is pretty much seen as an Internet phenomenon.
What sets DuckDuckGo apart is the claim that it doesn’t track your IP, or your search history. There are many other great features, like the ability to see official websites before Wikipedia answers, the ability to search directly on YouTube, Facebook, Amazon, etc… But this is not a search engine review.
