About to see how well their server(s) can handle the increased traffic







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

I just learned about it and changed. It seems slow and what comes up isn't as plentiful. Done stuff was from 2005 nothing new ...
Just different.

When using it as a search then when clicked its browser launches.

So, you download it and when you open it up it says, “Tap the fire button to erase your tabs...”
Would that be all the saved websites I have?

It erases your visited website history, not your saved bookmarks.

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.
Waterfox and DDG. On my iPhone, I also use DDG.

Started using it recently as well. Seems OK so far.

My question is how would any of us know if they are living up to the no tracking hype or not?

Thread drift imminent:
Pose the above question regarding any digital security issue. Seriously, I'd like to know if there is a way to get a trustworthy answer.

Slowly leaning towards it, one pc at a time. So far, no regrets.

One way is all your sidebar ads don't switch to adverts for your last searches or purchases. Your youTube recommended videos don't suddenly change to subject matter you've recently searched. Stuff like that.
