Congrats to DuckDuckGo on reaching 100 million daily search queries! 🎉

It's amazing to see a privacy-first Google alternative making such great progress! I personally contribute with a few searches every day 😀

@markosaric I expect it to keep picking up. No one is liking the behavior of these big tech monopolies. They don't deserve your data and the ability to monetize it further.

@markosaric For all search queries except those highly technical, DuckDuckGo has been my primary search engine for at least the last two years. Even for technical queries, although they're not as good as Google yet, they seem to be improving, even if at a snail's pace.

@markosaric I wonder how many of those are preceded with “!g” 😔

@kev @markosaric I surprisingly don’t use the !g very often. I actually try to forget it exists. I always find what I’m looking for oddly enough

@geekgonecrazy @kev i use !sp (startpage) instead for some technical searches. google results without google being directly involved

@markosaric @geekgonecrazy @kev I use Searx on my own Yunohost server. It is installed with a click of a mouse. Used by me and my wife.

@kev @geekgonecrazy even !s works the same way if you want to save a key press
