How I Use It
It's a solid search engine, but unlike Google, it does not remember where you've been or customize new searches. There are pluses and minuses to this approach, and it's a good conversation-starter.
My Take
I'd not heard of Duke Duck Go before; after investigating its history, it makes sense to show it to students and discuss elements of online privacy
