DuckDuckGo – Search Engine with Focus on Privacy

DuckDuckGo is an alternative search engine that has rich features, respects your privacy, and is built from free/open-source software. It is considered as one of the fastest growing services on the Web. At beginning of the year, it has celebrated more than 16 billion searches.

• Zero-click Info - Useful information above the links.
• More Privacy - We do not track you.
• Goodies - Instant answers, !bangs & settings.
• Less Spam - We remove sites with just ads.

It is easy to add the DuckDuckGo extension to your browser. It takes just one click, and you get instant benefits:

* Blocked advertising trackers.
* Your search history is kept private.
* You are in control of your personal data.

According to DuckDuckGo CEO Gabriel Weinberg, the service growing popularity shows the appetite for privacy online is only getting stronger. And, says Weinberg, the more people that use tools like DuckDuckGo’s, the more tech companies will be forced to reconsider their business model. “We’ll collectively raise the Internet’s privacy grade, ending the widespread use of invasive tracking,” writes Weinberg. It’s ambitious to say the least.

Keywords That Activate Facebook’s Text Delight Animations

Once awhile you may stumble on these effects on Facebook by chance, like posting "congratulations” on your friend’s birthday. When posted, these words appear as a different color and clicking on them triggers a brief animation (balloons or hearts, for example.)

The list of the special words is growing, and such minim-animations are called “text delights”. Some of the triggers are certain Holidays related, others are more generic. This program has unlocked delight for millions of people across the world and has had massive impact through the celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter, activating people around Earth Day and inspiring people to reflect on their maternal connections on Mother's Day.

The text combinations, activating the magic are presented below:

Dating site for Trump supporters: Making Dating Great Again!

Being straight is mandatory, being single is optional.

Trump.Dating, which launched the first week of February, only offers two options for users to describe their sexual orientation: straight male or straight female, and previously posted phrases like "deport liberals from your love life" and "find the America First partner of your dreams" on its site in bold.

The liberals-related statement has been taken off the front page later due to the harsh criticism.

Married people are welcome, though, as people can select their relationship status as "have a significant other," "happily married," and "unhappily married."

The basic membership is free, and premium memberships cost $13.95 for a six-month plan, $17.95 for a three-month plan, or $24.95 for a one-month plan. You can, however, "wink" and request to meet people for free.
