Isn't ddg mostly just a skin for bing anyway?
(Haven't used it in years, genuine question)

Besides I don't feel like one proprietary USA company overtaking another is a cause to celebrate

@wuwei they have a lot of sources, including Bing and their own crawler


I think it’s cause to celebrate if it’s normalizing privacy for the masses. One step at a time. Besides, there’s no FOSS search engine. The only option somewhat is Searx, but it’s a metasearch engine so not really

I'm happy that an alternative approach than Google is possible without acting as non-profit org.
