#1 Not a fan. It's way oversold as a free and clean search engine. And I simply hate animal mascots for tech products. I make an exception for long-gone Elephant Memory brand floppy disks.

#2 Well DuckDuckGo uses Bing as the base engine so it makes sense. That is why I also use the Brave browser. Can't get 'em all but most are blocked.

#4 This is a task for endpoint security. Use encrypted DNS. Use a VPN. Use your browser's InPrivate or similar feature when making those searches you are worried about. (What are you searching for that you are worrying about, BTW?)

#5 It's what I use. Not perfect, but at least search results are not all referrer links as with Google.

#6 When DDG began to censor searches, that was the beginning of the end for me with DDG.

Re: Bing. Actually, this raised a flag as well. Good gawd how I fooking loathe Bing, mostly because it was the default browser at work with all of the microsoft slop.

I've heard swisscows DOT com is a good one.
