DuckDuckGo, an Internet search engine that supports your online privacy consciousness has reached a new milestone by reaching over 10 million searchs/day. Whereas, Google reaches around 4.3 billion users/day, but DuckDuckGo has made an accountable factor on shorter period.
In the year 2012, DuckDuckGo hit 1.5 million users/day. In those days, there was a drastic increase in its traffic by 227%. Currently, it has reached over 10 million online users.
The advantages of privacy minded online user have been well utilized by the DuckDuckGo. A year back, it has been integrated in the OS X Yosemite and iOS 8 version of Safari. Therefore, its traffic boosted enormously. In 2014, Mozilla also added to Firefox, which is a greater advantage.
It doesn’t track IP address of the user, stores no cookies even as default, it only uses default encryption model. DuckDuckGo utilizes the data from Yahoo, Bing, Blekko but not Google and used its own web crawler.
DuckDuckGo took time to excel with the support of Apple and Mozilla till these days. The news was announced by Gabriel Weinberg on Twitter.
