Agreed, not a fan of duckduckgo result finding apart from it's attitude to privacy.
#14
Yes, same for me... Google is really god for searching everything I want. Never get this kind of result with DuckDuckGo or another (with more privacy respect).

Yeah, browsing and using the search engine daily nets you Microsoft points that give you benefits, like paying for Xbox Live, Game Pass, Entering sweep stakes and other such things

Duckduckgo all the way even though I'm using Qwant for privacy! Google gets too much data...
#17
I use duckduckgo 100% of the time, almost all the stuff im searching for can be found with DDG, and i like their bang feature, like !aw will search archwiki for help.
https://duckduckgo.com/bang for a list of bangs.

DDG may be privacy-focused but its search results are not even near to Google's. As for dorks for DDG I am not aware of any.

Ah right. I honestly probably wouldn't actually use it, but at least it's points that can actually be used for something instead of a number for boasting rights.

Tbh, I only use it coz I'm using the new Chromium built Edge that MS pushed out, (which is good!) so obviously you sign it with your MS account and bing is everywhere, only realised about 2 months ago what the number next to my avatar meant, so i bought Game Pass lol

google is a monopoly, change my mind
#22
Google.

I definitely value my security but I can't stand duckduckgo's weak searches and lack of personalization.

Oooh that's bold, using an MS browser. I just can't imagine a reality where it's decent, too many nightmares of Internet Explorer before and after 2000. But glad it's working out for you.

It's just chrome but you log into your MS account instead of your google account. Plus it rewards you with points i use on Xbox.
