Duckduckgo – https://duckduckgo.com/ searching without being tracked. Creepy http://donttrack.us/ Is google an evil empire? http://www.fastcolabs.com/3026698/inside-duckduckgo-googles-tiniest-fiercest-competitor

P.S. google was used in the making of this post, but I am in DIY rehab to change to duckduckgo – google is now a verb, but I “duckduckgoed” it? Maybe “ddg ed” it?
