Why I moved to duckduckgo? Hint: Privacy!

duckI decided to revive this blog.

I know it’s been super long since I have actively blogged. Sorry!

During that time I still used the internet and yes, I use search engines to stay informed. I even bought Google Glass and searched from it for a few things (mostly directions).

During that time Edward Snowden was all over the new about privacy. And for those of you who may ask: I don’t care if it’s the government spying on me, but private companies who’s using my information, sharing it and even selling to bigDATA… that’s a hell NO!

Long story short (I may have more on this soon), I decided to take control of my privacy, and trust me, it paid off.

I completely moved all my searches to duckduckgo, the only search engine comprehensive enough to fulfill my searching needs without tracking every single search and other data. I migrated back to Firefox from Chrome and I am not worried about my privacy as I used to be.

That’s it. take my advice or don’t, but it’s as simple as that, I will share more on other privacy issues in the near future.
