Hello ProductHunt, Switching to DuckDuckGo doesn't have to be all or nothing. You can help heal the web by simply reducing your use of Google search. This extension redirects some of your google searches to DuckDuckGo. The idea for this product came after seeing this tweet from the legendary DHH (https://twitter.com/dhh/status/1...) and it made so much sense to me. I like to believe that I am a privacy advocate but switching straight to DuckDuckGo from Google search is a little extreme for me, I always catch myself going back after a few days/weeks. Let me know what you think, the code is also open source if you want to check it out. Much love, Alex EDIT: So, something funny happened today, although I launched this yesterday, it got a spot on today's section again today. (prob. because it was in the Newest tab all day yesterday). That means that I have a double launch, since I also launched Epilepsy UX today and they are both on the front page side by side 😁

Cool ideaπŸ‘ haven't had a chance to test it on a PC yet, but does it redirect to duckduckgo at random? I'd like to be able to assign certain keywords to be searched on duckduckgo. I've noticed that Google greatly censors any search for "torrent" while duckduckgo apparently doesn't filter them, so I use duckduckgo for that.

@snetwork Hey, at the moment it just redirects randomly. That's a good idea though, I usually search for code related stuff on DDG. 😊
