PC-BSD Teams With DuckDuckGo to Provide Enhanced, Secure Web Searches

From the press release:

DuckDuckGo is a general-purpose search engine that offers real privacy, less spam/clutter and instant answers. Well-known and widely acclaimed for its privacy policy, DuckDuckGo does not store or track user information, ensuring a truly private search experience.

The most recent edition of PC-BSD updates the suggestion list of the search bar with DuckDuckGo to provide users with a discreet, clutter-free search option. Additionally, DuckDuckGo offers many benefits including the ability to use shortcuts to directly search many websites and instant answers that provide topic summaries from a variety of web sources.

PC-BSD users concerned with security can be confident in the knowledge that requests submitted through DuckDuckGo will remain confidential. “We are pleased to make DuckDuckGo available to PC-BSD users, providing a reliable, yet completely anonymous search experience,” says Kris Moore, Director of PC-BSD Software Development at iXsystems.

“We are delighted to partner with PC-BSD,” says Gabriel Weinberg, DuckDuckGo’s founder and CEO. “DuckDuckGo and PC-BSD have a shared philosophy on the value of open source and choice.”

    I have also been using Ixquick’s secure search since I read about it a few years ago & it works great. Just as accurate as Google as far as I can tell without all the annoying stuff Google has.

    Thanks a lot Dru and everyone else who works on the PC-BSD project, it keeps getting better and better! 🙂
