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

Re: startpage stepping up

Startpage was already better than DDG before the update.

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

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.
