Most search engines suffer from “search leakage.” In other words, when

you search and then click a link, the search terms that you entered are

shared with that site, along with your IP Address and other identifying

information. The DuckDuckGo search engine, by contrast, redirects your

request so that sites do not have access to your search terms. In

addition, DuckDuckGo does not save IP address, user agent, or browser

cookies during your searches, which means that your private information

is better protected. For a more complete description of everything that

DuckDuckGo offers, select the About section under the drop down tab on

the right hand side of the screen. Meanwhile, searching with the engine

is as easy as typing into the text box. All the increased privacy is

built into the service. [CNH]
