      Hi Margaret,

      Chrome and Opera are browsers – not search engines.

      Thanks,

      Hi Diane,

      Internet Explorer is not a search engine, it’s a browser.

      Thanks,

    Never heard of DuckDuckGo. Is that a real search engine? I am 75 years young and Don’t know.

    Until you told us about DuckDuckGo, had mostly used Google. However, I decided to check out your suggestion, and…am a decided convert. It is wonderfully easy to use, it finds what I want better, quicker, and sends along a greater selection. Hurray for DuckDuckGo!!

    I use Google, but my wife happen to have DuckDuckGo on her computer and the other day she was having problems with Google connecting so I switched her over to DuckDuckGo. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well DuckDuckGo operated. We did switch her back to Google once it was fixed, but I may be adding DuckDuckGo to my Search options on my PC in the near future.

    I used Google for a long t8me. However, I changed to Duck Duck Go. It is much faster . Duck Duck Go has a very nice newsletter also. I can search and find things faster. Keep up the good work Duck Duck Go. Thanks for all you do.

    I have used DuckDucKGo since it was first discussed in the InfoAv Premium newsletter. Google appear to be directing searches through a maze of crossroads with a ‘bubble’ to collect information along the way in order to distinguish an individual user’s like and dislikes.
    DuckDuckGo does the job with a no mess, no fuss, non-intrusive, non-collection of where I go and what I require on the Internet.
    Google should learn to KISS, keep it simple, stupid!

    I see from your poll that DuckDuckGo is popular. Maybe I’ll give it a try.

    I do a lot of medical research. I’ve used Duck Duck Go, Bing, and others.

    They all got similar results. However, I get more comprehensive results
    using Google.

    I like Goodsearch because it makes a donation to my favorite charity every time I use it.

    I have been leaning more and more to DuckDuckGo. At times they remind me of Google when they first came out. It is just something about them. I’m not saying every time is a perfect hit, but it is good enough to keep going back, or they at least put you on the right trail. I can remember when Google first came out as a search engine and my friends were asking me who they even were. I think Google is good my not good enough to stop looking around. That is my opinion…
