I use DuckDuckGo on some of my machines and Ecosia ( which is a non-profit based on Microsoft's "bing" search engine that takes its advertising revenue and - supposedly - uses it to fund planting trees).

What I really want to see is something like Yacy ( a distributed, decentralized, open source search engine ) not suck.

I'll just plant trees myself, fuck trusting them to do it.

I wonder how DGG makes money. I woder how placing an out of context ad would be enough to cover the costs of serving so many users.

In the end, its still proprietary- what is there to say they don't silently start selling us out? I continue to only trust searx instances hosted by people I know, because that's the only way to be sure.

DDG promises to be more private but since when should we trust capitalists?
