The following I share with you all from experience...

What I'm experiencing with 'normal' users is that they don't know which search engine they use. They just want a white screen with a search bar that tells them: Search term here.

In the Dutch language the default term for searching the internet is Google. I really don't get this. The average user does not even see that the default search engine is switched to Bing, DDG or some sort of malware search bar. They just type the search term and press enter.

I try as many people to get them to DDG and tell all of them that they need to change the region setting. That is the most important thing with the use of DDG.

Maybe DDG needs more team members who don't speak English as their native language.
