Startpage was already better than DDG before the update.
It looks pretty good. Does it use google though? Or is it independent
e: NVM, User RTFM == 0.
When in doubt, move north. God bless suomi.
It uses Google. DDG uses Yandex and Statesman. (http://securityspread.com/2016/10/24/du … 16-update/) The only privacy-focused independent search engine I know of is findx, but it is in Beta and pretty unusable as of yet. Searx at least allows to select which of a wide variety of search engines to use. (In contrast to Startpage and DDG it also has libre server side software, but their user interface is very cluttered.)
