Most search engines suffer from "search leakage." In other words, when you search and then click a link, the search terms that you entered are shared with that site, along with your IP Address and other identifying information. The DuckDuckGo search engine, by contrast, redirects your request so that sites do not have access to your search terms. In addition, DuckDuckGo does not save IP address, user agent, or browser cookies during your searches, which means that your private information is better protected. For a more complete description of everything that DuckDuckGo offers, select the About section under the drop down tab on the right hand side of the screen. Meanwhile, searching with the engine is as easy as typing into the text box. All the increased privacy is built into the service.
