I used DDG with Pale Moon (Windows, Android and Kubuntu) and Citrio for Windows (when I need to test a Blink-based browser).

I know Google isn't especially popular with some DuckDuckGo users, but I just use Google Chrome.

I use a lot of google products anyway so I don't have any personal issues with using Chrome.

If you want to get back your privacy you should start using chromium.
http://www.chromium.org/
it's the same thing as chrome except for it's private and it's open source.

You still have to accept something from Google when Installing chromium... so..

still, it's better than Google Chrome privacy wise.

I know there's some privacy issues with chrome, but I don't really want to screw with a separate pepper flash player plugin (Although you can install pepper flash on windows), plus I like having auto update.

I'm on windows and the effort of trying to use chromium with all the video/audio codecs, and update in a timely manner is more then I care to bother with.

To clarify, since I don't see an edit button. The risk that google might use my mouse clicks and browser crashes in their statistics tracking is far less annoying then the risk that I stumble on an actual botnet or someone exploits my browser's security because I didn't bother to update chromium fast enough. Also I kinda prefer having google's safe blacklist feature, even if I am running malware bytes and Avira antivirus.

I use duckduckgo for the privacy and convenience, but I also am completely willing to put up with some less privacy in exchange for security.

Does google track you if you use duckduckgo on google chrome?

I'm pretty sure that Google Chrome is a botnet.

I use IE, and I'm proud. Sometimes Firefox too, depending on whether I'm running Windows or Linux
