Surviving without Google Search, or surviving with Duck Duck Go

Google search has been part of my life. And I assume that is true for many people. But Google has been collecting users' data for a long time. As a commercial company, there is nothing to stop it from putting profit above  our benefits. We'd better to have some alternatives. Duck Duck Go may be such one.

Duck Duck Go claims respect of user privacy. Check their page:

One great thing about duck is its high customization of search query. I actually only use it in Chrome, to set search engine for address bar. To set the default search engine in Chrome, go to preference -> basic -> manage search engine. If Duck Duck Go is not in the list (which is the usual case), add it by URL
Here are more parameters you can try.
