If you want to change your internet browsing experience, it's easy to install a new browser on your PC. I've written about a couple of browsers over the past few days, which make a welcome change from the common trio of Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft's offerings.
But there's another way to freshen up your surfing experience, and that's to change your search engine rather than your entire browser. And again, you don't have to go with the most well-known ones like Google and Bing.
DuckDuckGo is the most stupidly named search engine around, but it's actually pretty good to use. It works just as you would expect - type something into the box and the results appear in a familiar format. But the most compelling reason to use it is that, unlike most other search systems, it doesn't track you, doesn't show you ads, and doesn't sell your data to other companies who might want to show you ads in the future for things you've been searching for.
DuckDuckGo is free to use. Just head to https://duckduckgo.com to use it. If you like it, set it as your home page in whatever browser you use.
