DuckDuckGo Has Grown 600%

DuckDuckGo has grown 600% since Apple put it as a search option (and NSA revelations)

Speaking in an interview with CNBC, DuckDuckGo CEO Gabe Weinberg said that the company’s traffic has grown 600 percent over the past two years. A variety of factors likely played a role in this explosion of growth, but it is mainly attributable to the NSA’s surveillance program, which was revealed two years ago, and Apple adding it as a default search option with iOS 8 and Safari 7.1 on the Mac. Google, however, has remained the default option.

It is easy to make DuckDuckGo your default search engine in either SafariFirefox, Opera, Chrome or Internet Explorer (yes, I hear some folks still use this).

Go do it now!
