Default DuckDuckGo or Startpage

I know people quite like DuckDuckGo, I'm using it myself along with Epic browser, but is there any difference between DuckDuckGo and Startpage and if so, what ?

Default Re: DuckDuckGo or Startpage

The main difference is the search engines they use to get results for the searcher. DuckDuckGo uses its own search engine whereas Startpage uses the Google search engine. This is why personally I would always use DuckDuckGo in preference to Google who I don't like very much! There's more info in this article:

Privacy is an important feature with all 3 of the search engines mentioned in the article linked to above - you could say that Startpage is Google without the latter's lack of privacy for users!
