    This is pretty darn impressive. And just look at that chart: the boom began when Google's privacy policy was changed to allow them even more user tracking! People care about privacy. This can be a great marketing asset if you are creative.

    Do they earn any money? If not, how can they keep this project alive?

    Maybe they want to switch to duck.com but I don't think the owner wants to sell it.
    Hint: is Google.

    Good for them. It's about time Google sees some competition.

    They have the most advanced algorithm (behind Google of course) than other search engines.

    I just searched some terms, they are pretty similar to Google.

    IMO the name is a bit of a setback with regular users.

    I would like to tell my family and friends to use it but they don't take me seriously when I say the name.

    Should move to DDG.com or something like that

    They have a relatively good algorithm, I don't see much trash for some searches at all.....but then again I haven't done much testing.
