Our jobs as nerds is to start setting our families devices up to use @duckduckgo by default. Google has an monopolistic market share in search and web browser.

@ChrisShort I've been nudging my family and wife toward alternatives for a while now, but I'm surprised how much several of them rely heavily on Google Search history and pulling up "old things I looked for" in their decisions to keep using it. I'm honestly getting tired of talking about "responsible and/or ethical" computing with most people. So many just don't care - so I just make my own choices and encourage alts when asked.
