I have been using DuckDuckGo for several years now. Recently I was talking to a friend about this, and she explained that while she likes the idea of DuckDuckGo, she still thinks she would occasionally need Google. “Then just bang Google,” I responded, and she looked at me like I just got off a spaceship.
Such useful trick if you don’t want Google to know everything you ever search the internet for. Duck Duck Go is a solid search engine for the privacy it gives you…knowing these shortcuts make it that much better.
