I have been using DuckDuckGo as my search engine of choice for the last few years. Howerver, DuckDuckGo seems to have a few problems:
It is based in the US, arguably not the most privacy-respecting jurisdiction in the world.
Only part of their source code is open.
Uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) as a cloud provider and Cloudfare CDS.
It looks like their browser was caught tracking visited websites per user.
At the end of the day, you can’t really know that they are telling the truth when they promise not to track you.
In this post, I’m discussing Searx, a better alternative to DuckDuckGo that is truly open and driven by the community.
