Not bad, not bad. DDG might have some competition.

Re: startpage stepping up

Startpage was already better than DDG before the update.

Re: startpage stepping up

It looks pretty good. Does it use google though? Or is it independent

Hindsight is always 20/20.

When in doubt, move north. God bless suomi.

Re: startpage stepping up

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.)

Re: startpage stepping up

It may be better but it doesn't seem nearly as popular, putting a better UI on it will probably help it's popularity. I heard of a guy who put a Google skin over DDG to get himself to stop using Google.
