Hello, I use duck duck go from my android  tablet. It has chrome browser, and I Miss two things:
  1. There isn't possible to specifiy duckduckgo as search engine.
  2. In the search page, the search text widget should have an clear button. If I write a text to search, and I want to rewrite it, I must delete character by character.
Thanks.

Regarding #1: Android=Google, which means that they will always push uses to use their services and also means that Android devices are constantly feeding the Google data monster.

Aye. I'd recommend Cyanogenmod highly. F-Droid has become a very good package manager and has all that I care for.

Android is open source, though (mostly) so it should be completely possible to set an alternative default search engine. It just seems like such an obvious need, I'd be surprised if it wasn't done already.

It might be more difficult, but it should also be possible to break it off from Google's contact (Ubuntu can run on Android hardware, is my first thought regarding this).
