I guess everyone have noticed lately that Google is collecting more and more information when you are doing your searches. They track your place of living, they show you custom ads, they keep your search history, your mails, etc, etc, etc.
What I never liked about Google is that by default it is unsecure. The main page http://google.com is not using https. Gmail by default does not use https unless you configure it so, etc.
Now, there is a new search engine out there: https://duckduckgo.com/.
According to their policy, they don’t do most of the things Google does: http://dontbubble.us/. And they seem to have a decent search capabilities.
Worth a try! 😉
