The DuckDuckGo Browser

I just started using our portfolio company DuckDuckGo’s mobile browser.

Honestly I didn’t even realize they had one until last week.

It looks like this on my phone:

And AVC looks like this in it:

I guess AVC is only a B+ when it comes to privacy. I hope to fix that and get to an A when I push the new design, hopefully next month.

If you want to start using the Duck Duck Go mobile browser, you can get it here.

    Been using it for some time now-it’s great, especially given the privacy aspect of it.

    Hey Fred – I’m also only a B+Moved to Duck Duck Go for desktop search a while ago. Happy to see it on mobile.

    DDG was a dev concept way back in 2007 and had first delivery in late 2009 (I think). Super fun to see a team and product persist for more than a decade! Especially in a market space that many often write off as being too crowded and already dominated by G as far back as 2001. I hope they end up being a great investment for Union Square. — Anyone know why DDG mainly serves ads only from the Bing/Yahoo ads CDN and Ebay/Amazon affiliate modules, when so many other option exist (just curious)?

    This is cool. I just tried it. Where’s the info about what to do in order to move from C to B to A?

    .Why does it strike my funny bone that the VC behind DDG doesn’t really know the capabilities of their invested company?Is that just me?Full disclosure: I like DDG in an anti-Google sort of way.JLMwww.themusingsofthebigredca…

      Is it because all VC money is ultimately “dumb money?”

        .No. I think VCs, as a subgenus of the human race, are amongst the world’s most illuminated in an Illuminati sort of mammal way.It’s just an anomaly that Freddie doesn’t know what a company he has skin in is doing. Just a small thing. It happens.It’s like hitting your funny bone.JLMwww.themusingsofthebigredca…

    Now if only one could manage default apps for specific functions on mobile as easily as on desktops

    Been using DDG since you first mentioned USV’s investment years ago. Combined with a VPN, like TorGuard, does a lot for privacy. Nice to know about the browser.Life Lesson: Never follow a one-legged duck.

    Been using it for years and it’s embedded in my search. Reason is same as JLM’s. Trying to make the switch to Brave Browser but it’s tougher

    What PandF said. First heard it here with your round news years ago. Shane Parrish’s interview with Weinberg was great too.

    Been using it in chrome for a long while and on the mobile for a bit. Love it.

    A rebranding to Zuck Zuck Go might tempt me to use it more.

    Fred, actually it is necessary to click on B+ icon and reveal that real privacy grade of is (C), though thanks to DDG blockers it is upgraded to B+ https://uploads.disquscdn.c

    You are absolutely right in this topic and peoples are easy to analysis but, here is my topic about auto transport and auto shipping also many other ways, for example, car shipping, car transport, vehicle shipping, and the last vehicle transport, these are best ways for shipping I hope you are interesting.
