I just wanted to let DuckDuckGo and everyone at the community here know that I have completely conquered my habit of relying on Google search, and DuckDuckGo (among other non-tracking search engines, but primarily DuckDuckGo) was a big part of making that happen.
I don't feel any sense (as I did for a while) that Google is providing me with any better search experience or results. When searching I have no compulsion to check Google anymore to see if I can come up with a better search result there.
I am as comfortable using DDG now as I once was using Google...I could go on about all the things Google did to drive me away - the tracking and the too personalized search results to name but a few - but I'm sure this community is well-versed in all the pitfalls and drawbacks to using Google's various services and products.
So thanks for providing a search engine that I like and just feel more comfortable using.
