Browser search engines

Looking for opinions on DuckDuckGo, thinking of using it as my search engine.

I gave DuckDuckGo a solid two month try. Was not really impressed with the search results and lack of built in tools when compared to google. So I eventually switched back. But I think in time all of that will improve and I'll try it again

What I am looking for is, when I type in a search; do you get the obvious answer first. As an example, if I typed in Joe's shoe shop in Cincinnati, I expect that to be the first thing listed and not on page 5.

One of the worst things about DDG is it usually shows a business' yelp page over other sites. Yelp is awful in just about every way. Try DDG for a week or two then you'll realize how much more advanced google's algorithms are. But DDG has something like 40 total employees while google has ~90,000 so they're giving a pretty solid effort

I currently use Google, getting tired of the results that show whoever paid google to have their results show up first and having to go through pages to find the particular item/store that I am looking for.

Use an ad blocker and the paid results will disappear. Even without an ad blocker, they should only be the first 2-3 listings before the organic results.

Sounding like this may be another "old man trying to use the internet" issue rather than an issue with Google.

My TRS-80 works just fine; am thinking about an upgrade from 64k to 128k though.

uBlock Origin paired with AdBlock Plus is the only way to go.
