DuckDuckGo receives plaudits

DuckDuckgo, the search engine that offers searching without snooping, has been selected by Time Magazine as one of the fifty best websites of 2011. The search engine was launched in 2008 by Gabriel Weinberg and is remarkable in having only one full-time employee!  It has built its reputation on offering excellent searching and allied this with the promise that searches will not be tracked and recorded — many search engines, including Google, keep records of searches and link them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses so searches emanating from a particular computer can be tracked.
