Wary of tracking, users flock to DuckDuckGo

»www.nbcnews.com/technology/wary-···10321830

It seems regular users are becoming wary of the majors collaborating with spy agencies such as Google, Bing and Yahoo are flocking to search engines that give them some damn privacy!

Who do we trust?
I've been using DuckDuckGo since Scroogle folded up and am satisfied with the results I get using their search engine.

I'm wary they have a java but like their non-java page.

I've used it in the past, but since I tried Startpage, I really feel comfortable there. I may be nuts, but...

»startpage.com/eng/protect-privacy.html is the URL for the Startpage Protects Your Privacy!

I don't know how this compares to DuckDuckGo any more.

And further more, even though I use this link, I don't trust anything!

See below comment on DuckDuckGo
»Re: Yahoo to Users: Let Us Read Your Emails or -- Goodbye!

And another valid question is:
How do you get a home user started on all this ?

"Comfortably Numb" seems appropriate.

I've tried DuckDuckGo and Startpage. The latter seems to give more relevant results, and can also do site:specific searches which can be handy.

Of course it does, it gets its results by Google.
