Ever since Snowden and PRISM became household names, anonymous search has never been less unknown. Snowden’s leaks began in early June, and on June 17, DuckDuckGo -- a search engine that doesn’t track cookies or save records of users’ IP addresses -- had 3 million daily direct searches, compared to 1.8 million for the entire month prior. Creator Gabriel Weinberg solo-founded DuckDuckGo in 2008. By design, it doesn't collect, store or share any personal information. But privacy isn’t its only differentiator. DuckDuckGo also delivers instant answers, a feature that presents direct answers to people’s queries, rather than delivering a list of links.
