Privacy matters. This is what you read everywhere. Google tracks you. Don’t use Google. Use DuckDuckGo. Use Qwant. They don’t.
There is no way to prove any of that. So I did a usability test. I started using DuckDuckGo as my main search engine. Every time I entered a search term, it was DuckDuckGo to deliver the result. Then I did the same with Qwant. The result?
- Awful user interface. I just hate it. It looks like it came right from a scam site.
- Bad search results. Often search terms had nothing to do with the results. A comparing search on google caused better results.
In the end, DuckDuckGo’s and Qwant’s only usp is privacy. And that I cannot verify.
So fuck privacy and welcome good search results.
