What browser and search engine does /g/ use?

>> No.66263511

Google Chrome

I used Firefox before for a long time but it got too slow, buggy and bloated so I ditched it. Safari is nice but I can't find a good adblock for it. There are no good search engines. Sometimes I try bing if google is being dumb.

Anything but Google is unusable for me. I tried DDG but it was missing a shit ton of search results that Google had in the top 3 results.

>Gabriel Weinberg, the founder of DuckDuckGo, used to run the Names Database.[1] This was a website that aimed to connect people who had lost contact by gathering lots and lots of e-mail addresses. Getting access could be done by either paying money, or submitting lots of e-mail addresses of other people. Since the service revolved around gathering personal information, it is very suspicious for Gabriel Weinberg to start a business that is privacy-oriented. [2]
>DuckDuckGo used to set a tracking cookie, even though they claimed they didn't. This was done by a third party they cooperate with, which means that it wasn't necessarily intentional, but if it's unintentional, it shows a worrying lack of care.[3]
>DuckDuckGo is based in the US. This makes it really easy for the NSA to compromise it. If it were based in the EU, for example, the NSA wouldn't have the legal power to force them to log everything without telling anyone. This wouldn't guarantee privacy, but it would make it a lot more plausible. Instead, they're based in the US, which means that the NSA can do whatever they want with them. There are secure search engines that are not based in the US.
Obviously "confirmed as a botnet" was tongue in cheek, but there are legit concerns with DDG.

It's just little shit that pisses me off. For example I was trying to go to the Crites site which is a parts side for old Klipsch speakers. The URL is critesspeakers.com (didn't know this when I was searching). Search "crites speakers" on DuckDuckGo and get a bunch of results talking about the site, but not the actual site. Search "crites speakers" on Google and first result is the actual site.

I also like when you search a current topic on Google it aggregates news stories.

keyword search (or as you call it, """bangs""") has been built into firefox and chrome for ages.
the only one getting banged her is you, by routing all your requests through a search engine that has its servers in the united states.

Would like to use Safari but there is no HTTPS Everywhere and no webm support for 4chan and Youtube, but at least it's getting Favicons in tabs in macOS Mojave which is an improvement.
For a company like Apple that says they care a lot about privacy it's kinda weird not having HTTPS Everywhere built in.
