Wonder how that math works. ;-)

There are more ways to avoid Google.
I prefer Ixquick/Startpage. Just a few reasons why:

- I/S stores my settings in a cookie, DDG stores them in the cloud.
  Where are the cloud servers? For me it makes a lot of difference
  if they're in Europe or in the US.

- DDG lets you choose search categories (web, pictures, etc.) only
  *after* you've done a web search. With I/S you can make the choice

- When I open a private window in FF and start DDG with my settings
  "encoded" in the URL, then check the settings, they're back to the
  default. When I do the same with I/S, the settings are the ones
  "encoded" in the URL.
