But a search engine that tracks you is a good thing, it helps you get the results you are looking for not some random junk from the internet. And who says you can trust duckduckgo, duckduckgo? Google is a huge corporation which makes a lot of money from the data you entrust them with, so google is far more trustworthy because they have a reputation and a huge revenue to loose whereas duckduckgo has nothing to loose but a lot to win from abusing your data....

I care about the search results. It's what I use a search engine for. I find that Google is still better at it.

I'm using only DDG for 5 months and compared to google or startpage, results are not as accurate. I plan to switch back to startpage because it uses google's results.

Moreover, i think that startpage is safer than DDG, it's a non profit organisation.

According to Calomel SSL validation. DDG is blue, and StartPage is green

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/calomel-ssl-validation/

The "Calomel SSL Validation" add-on grades the SSL cipher strength of the current connection. Access to a detailed summery of the SSL negotiation is supplied by a toolbar button you can now place on any toolbar. The button also will change color depending on the grade from red (low score), to orange, to yellow, to blue and finally to green (high score). Standard HTTP unencrypted connections will turn the URL bar icon gray.

This add-on was designed to more easily show the true security state of the connection so everyone can learn more about ciphers and encryption using SSL. Firefox currently shows a green URL tag for an extended validation (EV) or a blue URL tag for a domain validation (DV) certificate and a lock icon if the connection is SSL encrypted. We did not think this was enough information to decide if the connection to the site was truly secure. This is why the "Calomel SSL Validation" add-on was developed. We score the connection on the following items: if the certificate was valid, if the fully qualified host name is equal to the common name the certificate was registered for and the strength of the cipher and cipher key length.

They make all that money by aggregating and selling data. Your data. Any information that passes through their network is worth nothing to them but how much they can make by selling it. They rely on people with blind faith in their supposed trustworthiness - like you, for instance - to make up their revenue stream.

Agree, it's pretty hard to use something new after you get used to something else for a long time and evolved with the results (and so the own way of searching for stuff), that is the main focus a search engine should have, i'm not too satisfied with those alternatives.

Google doesn't sell your data to a 3rd party, it uses the data to serve you targeted ads.
