DuckDuckGo is Gnome's new default web search engine


From ghacks:
Gnome announced plans to switch its main web search engine from Google to DuckDuckGo recently. If you are a regular reader of Ghacks you know that DuckDuckGo is a new type of search engine that came to life in recent time. Instead of focusing solely on search and the user as a product, it aims to protect the privacy of users in several ways.

I do not want to rehash all that has been said already here many times, only this much. DuckDuckGo, and alternatives such as Startpage for that matter, do not put users in a bubble when they search. While some may like personalized search results, I prefer my results to be unbiased when I do research.
