I think I'll give DuckDuckGo a "Go". I never considered how Google may be shaping how I learn when I search. Of course I knew they were spying on the searches, which really, is reason enough to try something else.


I've been using it for a bit. There are some things that I'm having trouble adjusting to, like place searches not having an option to see a map, but that might just be me. Some of the results don't always seem as accurate, but I'm experimenting to see if that's a perceived issue or an actual data set issue.

I'm curious how you do with it as well.
