This is my new default search engine replacing google. Let's face it, nothing is private on the web, but why should I let Google track my every move?

DuckDuckGo is the perfect solution to searching privately.

when I first purchased my kindle fire I was worried. about not having foible as a search engine, but DuckDuckGo is just fine so far.

I've used DuckDuck on my desktop for a couple of years & have been perfectly satisfied. It's every bit as fast as Google search (and as comprehensive in it's results), while keeping private your search criteria. The NAME might be stupid but the app is BRILLIANT!

I love Duckduckgo on my android and it pains me to write such a devastating review to a company that truly cares about your privacy and rights to your own business. I mean I even have one of your t-shirts and have gotten countless friends and family members to ditch Google for them. However when I used this app on my Kindle Fire HD upon opening it was unusable. I don't mean it was slow or crammed with ads I mean it would literally break down EVERY time. I really did everything. I rebooted I reopened changed WIFI and connections I even ran my tablet in a safer mode out of pure paranoia that it my device that was malfunctioning. Nothing. It would still glitch out and blank screen whenever I tried to search something. I truly hope to see an update to the tablet version and a fix to the only search engine I put my trust in.

Locks up my Fire HDX on previous search, weird strobing, quickly clogs up caches, forcing an app flush and restart.

This behavior is all the more perplexing given that DuckDuckGo is highly recommended on other platforms (e.g., Linux, Mac, etc.). Did DuckDuckGo's own dev team do this app, or did it come from some godforsaken code sweatshop? I'm guessing the latter...

I made a big mistake in using this application. I had been using the "Open in external browser" which opened Silk.

After I submitted the 5star review yesterday, I tried it using one of the links instead of going to the external browser. It fribrulated, that is, I got nowhere. I removed it from the device and the cloud.

I use duck duck as one of my browsers on my phone and computer and never had issues. On the fire it opens up and searches with no problems. When a link to the site was clicked that's when things got annoying. It was like you were hitting the search button rapidly over and over. I watched this happen for minutes. Just something else the kindle is not compatible with.

I accidentally found DuckDuckGo the other day while using Opera (browser) on my laptop and "wow" came to mind. The mission is to provide relevant search content without mining your personal data; privacy. A refreshing old way of doing business.
