If you haven’t switched to duckduckgo yet what convinced me was when @amsomniac showed me the !bangcodes
Basically if you start a ddg search with something like !ebay or !wiktionary it searches that site directly after being anonymized through ddg’s server. So rather than have different search engines in my browser I select it’s just !w for Wikipedia or !translate for google translate
You can even do !g and do an anonymous untracked google search
@shel@amsomniac DDG is great like 95% of the time but absolutely fucking terrible for anything social justice related in my experience. Was searching for resources after an uncomfortable experience on public transit and instead got gross lewd stuff about how to do exactly the same thing.
@amsomniac@shel (Apologies to anyone who saw this before the CW. The prevalence of dudebro shittiness in a lot of alternative software/services is definitely something that has to be confronted so it doesn't drive away marginalized people, and I don't think DDG does that well at all.)
