Google Search date-based search stopped working (0 results), so I switched to @DuckDuckGo site-search. More:
Things DuckDuckGo shows that Google Search does not:
* 😄 emoji in search result summaries
* 👤 author/icon of a post
Compare searches for "site:tantek.com Before Tomorrowland" in each.
Note also that Google Search has taken other steps backward (e.g. dropped support for rel=author).
For those that value privacy, less tracking, etc. note that DuckDuckGo is also “The search engine that doesn't track you” https://duckduckgo.com/about
These reasons are sufficient to switch from Google Search to DuckDuckGo:
* Good enough search results
* MUCH faster page loading including links to results
I remember when I switched to Google for web search over a decade ago because Google was faster and good enough compared to Yahoo! Search.
Now DuckDuckGo is faster and good enough compared to Google Search.
