I don't know about ixquick, but gibiru just seems to be a (poorly formatted) Google scrubber.

Actually, gibiru just uses google custom search in an iframe, so google can still track you.

From https://duckduckgo.com/privacy.html:
Other Search Engines  

If you care about search privacy, you might also want to check out these other search engines that take it seriously by default.

Each does things a bit differently in terms of privacy and very differently in terms of results. And not all go as far as DuckDuckGo in some aspects. However, none store your personal information by default, which make them all pretty safe in our opinion. 
Scroogle is just a Google-scraper; Ixquick is a meta search engine. Ixquick has native (meta) image and video search, but they miss many of the goodies (like !bang and zero-click info) that DuckDuckGo offers.

I use Ixquick sometimes but the formatting is hard to read and has a lot of junk answers/ads.  It provides cached results, which as far as I know, ddg does not, yet cached answers are still hard to read.  So far I like ddg for most things.  I use it for any remotely personal search.  It's given me good results and I trust the privacy rules.  So DDG for sure.

DuckDuckGo is the best but ixquick is good, too. But I don´t know gibiru.
