Re: For all your searching
But I still go to Google for cases when I actually want to see stuff to buy
I agree, Google is much better than DDG for that. However, I make sure to open the links in private windows, copy the URL and then re-open it in another private window if I'm actually going to make a purchase. Probably doesn't help, but I want to do whatever I can do to hurt Google's attempts to connect searches to sales :)
Hopefully DDG will get better in this regard, as that's pretty much the last thing I still use Google for.
