If you haven’t switched to duckduckgo yet what convinced me was when @amsomniac showed me the !bangcodes

Basically if you start a ddg search with something like !ebay or !wiktionary it searches that site directly after being anonymized through ddg’s server. So rather than have different search engines in my browser I select it’s just !w for Wikipedia or !translate for google translate

You can even do !g and do an anonymous untracked google search

@shel Wow. Didn’t know this. Have to try it right away

@shel Well. The search results page returned by Google and YouTube still collects your IP address, apparently
