Mine too after I found Start Page censor searches. They are lucky Elmer Fudd didn't show up.

Doesn't matter what we use, there'll always be someone who says "don't use it" and then provides next to no reason why not to use it :mad:

To be fair, that blog post (above) was simply reblogged from another blog and offered for whatever value it might offer. I have no problem with either Duck Duck Go or Startpage or Searx. Anything but Google or Bing is fine with me.

Duck duck go is hosted on Amazon (CIA partner). I use Qwant, I do not know how private it is, but I get what I want.

This is just a question. But why not using Chromium instead ? Chrome is the worst, considering tracking and private life policy.

I noticed that some MX users and MX developers use Chrome. It's something I don't understand.
