I finally did it, I changed my default search engine in Chrome from Google to a more privacy oriented search engine DuckDuckGo. You may be wondering why? Well no particular reason, I’m just tired of giving all my free data to Google (you know what they say, if the product is free, then you are the product)
The process was simple, by installing the DuckDuckGo Browser Extension everything else is taken care of for you. Now when I do a search in my browser instead of going to Google, it shows me results from DuckDuckGo and honestly, I can’t say I have missed much.
This week’s Cool Tech of the Week is the DuckDuckGo Browser Extension. Give it a try for a week and see what you think.
