DuckDuckGo (duckduckgo.com) is a search engine. DuckDuckGo was founded by Gabriel Weinberg. Similar sites to DuckDuckGo include Bing, Wolfram Alpha, Startpage, and Dogpile.

DESCRIPTION

The homepage of duckduckgo.com had a large search box at the top of the page with the DuckDuckGo to the left. Beneath the search box but still above the fold were two buttons: one to set DuckDuckGo as the default search engine and another for downloading the DuckDuckGo browser. Below the fold was a lot of extra information. The first section was to download the DuckDuckGo desktop and mobile browser and the desktop browser extension from various app stores. When I scrolled further, it showed comparisons of DuckDuckGo with other search engines. Further down the page is information that explains the DuckDuckGo browser’s features. 4/17/2024
