In short, DDG will continue to work and function as it has in the past, while continuing to improve. DDG has always used Yahoo as one of it's sources, they have just strengthened the relationship with them for improved feature (date filtering, for example). DDG uses it's own search algorithms and is NOT Yahoo in a DDG wrapper.

Sorry, unable to replicate using Safari 9.1 on OS X El Capitan (see screenshot). May be a local ISP issue, browser issue, etc.

One thing that you can do is to go into DDG's settings, click on the Privacy button and set Get Requests to OFF.

Please remember that browsing history is stored as a function of your browser. If you don't want your search history recorded on your browser, use the browser's "Private Window" or "Incognito" mode.

In short, no.

For the most thorough answer, I suggest that you read the DDG Privacy Policy, specifically the sections:

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Enhancement request: Add a button next to the search field to use all words from the search 3 years and 4 months ago
Thanks for your comments and suggestion. Although there is currently no button as you've described, DDG does have syntax that supports the functionality that you are requesting. Give our syntax help page a look and see if this helps with your searches: https://duck.co/help/results/syntax

Thanks!

Here is what Yegg wrote for the DDG subReddit:

We've actually been using Yahoo technology along with our own and others since the very beginning of DuckDuckGo. Over the past year though we've been working on a stronger partnership with Yahoo so we can get access to more features like date filters that everyone has been asking for (that one in particular is our most requested feature by far).

We are excited that we are about able to launch this new technology. Some more details on the latest partnership are here: https://duck.co/help/company/yahoo-partn....

Due to contractual reasons, this technology has to come through a yahoo subdomain, but we got them to give the subdomain to us so there are no privacy implications. To make it crystal clear, Yahoo has also put out a privacy statement: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/search-for-des...

That's the subdomain you are referring to above. The details on the technical implementation are here: https://duck.co/help/results/yahoo-techn....

With regards to the ads, nothing is changing in terms of ad privacy/tracking or our privacy policy in general. Ads should just become more relevant.

In short, DDG will continue to work and function as it has in the past, while continuing to improve. DDG will NOT be Yahoo in a DDG wrapper, but will continue to provide the same privacy as it has in the past.
