I thought so. Hopefully we can increase that even more.

Feeling ducky myself! A great milestone. It's great to see the numbers continue to edge up even as many Americans puts the NSA revelations behind them.

This month is on pace to have more searches than last month.

Pretty good for a fairly new search provider that values its users privacy (especially when "no one cares about private search").

I must admit, I am feeling ducky as well.

Over 4,000 direct searches again yesterday. Hopefully this trend continues.

Thanks! I'm pretty confident this latest bump is due to FF23 being rolled out for a lot of people over the last few days. The latest Firefox has more sane search engine handling where the search box controls what is in the omnibar and homepage search, and so we're being restored to a lot of people that had been being subverted in a few weird ways after initial install of the DuckDuckGo extension.

Correction: Over 4,000,000 direct searches again yesterday.

I am predicting there will be over 4,000,000 again today.
