Been using it for a while now.

It used to be a lot slower than it is now.

I too use it. Unfortunately, Google permeates all my other electronics.

Been using it for several years. Never an issue and never ads that appear about or after my searches.

Google and Bing are history!!!

Can someone explain advantages and disadvantages (if any) of making this change pls?

EDIT: Found the site and have made the change. Thanks for the heads-up.

I use DuckDuckGo along with StartPage (SSL) which also doesn't track.

So Startpage running TLS thru a VPN!

TLS encrypts your data, then VPN does the same on top of that, right?

Sounds pretty secure.

Is DuckDuckGo preferable to Bing?

This is the 2nd time I've had it as my default search engine. It doesn't allow you to limit your search to a year (a flaw they should fix as current time limits are only day, week, or 1 month), but it's a winner because:
  • they do not track you
  • they allow direct linking of photos . Google and Bing both quit doing that a few months ago and it takes a whole bunch of clicks to get to a photo link.

    Ditto.

    I still have a Google account and Gmail address, but I never used Gmail for anything but Google-related stuff, and now I no longer use Android mobile devices, so it's essentially unused.

    It's a funny old thing: At one time I was thoroughly immersed in the Googlesphere. Now down to a couple rarely-used Android TV devices and the Gboard keyboard on my iPad (with Full Access disabled). Google burned their bridges with me, several ways.

    What are you guys using for a web browser? I've been using Microsoft Edge (with DuckDuckGo as a default search engine) on my PC and phone for awhile now.

    I have an Android phone, so It's hard to get away from Google on that, so I use Samsung aps and third party aps as much as possible. But on my PC, I use Google for photo storage and that's about it.
