Search engines

Anyone has any experience of https://duckduckgo.com/?

It doesn't profile users or put in tons of ads, though they don't have similar resources as google or bing to crawl around servers to find pages. I did couple test searches and it seemed to find the stuff I was searching.

I've been using it for some time already.
The good thing about it is that it does not spy you.

There is also another thing about it, it does not have the paging.

The results are presented on pages and pages are numbered on the bottom in google, for example.

According to the DuckDuckGo, the Himalia website is presented second. Over the Wikipedia article of the real moon of the Jupiter. At least it is indexing stuff right :P
