Duck Duck Go

Classified as a hybrid search engine by TechCrunch, www.duckduckgo.com is a start-up that uses crowd-sourcing for its search results and does not store user data and information. Entrepreneur Gabriel Weinberg’s last start-up, The Names Database, was sold for $10 million, and this time he’s used the flaws of Google to develop a more private search engine that doesn’t generate results based on the user’s interests and past searches. Contrary to Google, the ads also don’t pollute the search page, being a lot cleaner and more discreet. In October of 2012, DuckDuckGo already had 45 million searches.
