Quick note on the DuckDuckGo switch.
I’ve used DDG since before it was cool… having dropped Google years ago.
I use Brave browser, exclusively, and fully support the founder.
However, when DDG came out and started censoring Russia, I tested them and other search engines out.
Brave uses GOOGLE as it’s underlying search engine, and will display very similar results as GOOGLE (go see for yourself).
Try searching “2020 election was stolen” in Brave search and compare with DDG and Google.
DDG is still the best option at the moment, although their recent decision concerns me greatly.
DDG is still the most uncensored, propaganda-free engine. This is after testing other search engines as well.
