DuckDuckGo Internet Browsers


Recommended Posts

Following on from the What's App thread. As recommended by someone (Maybe Soupeod again) some time ago ,I have converted to using DUCK DUCK GO..as a browser on my Android phone. A small learning curve but I keeped at it and quite happy. Does everything that Chrome does. I can't offer/or provide/prove any technical advantages in its claimed privacy features but very stable. I tried Brave browser as well (which actually gives a pop-up every so often telling you how many trackers have been blocked)... but preferred Duck duck go visually .runs and looks well with a black background.

Forgot to mention that I have also installed Ad Block Browser Just for Youtube... YouTube has gone crazy recently with a lot of comments by netizens regarding the amount of Youtube adds. Visually it makes YouTube visually dated as was seen about 10 years ago but other than that NO adds , Terrific...

I like DuckDuckGo as a company. 
 

I hear Brave is a good browser. Created by Firefox ceo when he got tired of cancel culture at Firefox. 
 

I use safari because passwords linked to key Chain shares them In all my devices.

The TOR browser uses DuckDuckGo as a search engine.

I'll try this browser out.  I have been using the Opera Browser and it blocks the YouTube pop ups and others.

This is set as my homepage. On all my browsers. 
 

only problem is it searches using google. So sometimes you have to use another search engine when google gets political. Bing usually avoids politics and instantly finds what you want. But I don’t like ms tracking.

This afternoon I attempted to import bookmarks into DUCK duck Go.

I could not find an option/method.

A search found references that this feature is missing and has not  been implemented/added and has been requested by many users since 2018.
Is this still the case,Yes I can add one at a time manually, plus in my environment I really haven't got a lot,,, it's not a big deal.thanks

It's not a browser, but for a home page, I think it's great.

https://www.wibki.com

I have several dozen pages of bookmarks for different subjects. They are accessible from a menu visible from any Wibki page.

Here is one of my pages I call Transportation:
