DuckDuckGo Browser for Mac Launches in Beta With Emphasis on Privacy and Speed

....DuckDuckGo is today launching an all-new browser for macOS in beta that is "an all-in-one privacy solution for everyday browsing with no complicated settings, just a seamless private experience," set to rival Apple's Safari and Google's Chrome on the Mac.



Building on the success of the DuckDuckGo browser on the iPhone, DuckDuckGo on the Mac includes a number of privacy features. For starters, DuckDuckGo says that its browser on macOS features a "powerful tracker blocker," email protection, and more, all built-in with no strings attached.

On top of privacy, DuckDuckGo for macOS in beta is "really fast." According to tests conducted by DuckDuckGo, it uses 60% less data than Chrome and is faster than Chrome in some graphics performance tests. DuckDuckGo for macOS is still in beta, and interested users can join the private waiting list here.



duck you........duck you all......on the Mac......?!

I just signed up for the beta list.


I couldn't find a link for that and the site says it's a closed beta.

Safari is my favorite browser, mainly for it's clean design, and DDG is my search engine of choice.

I currently use Firefox when this old version of Safari won't render a site.

Firefox says it won't save cookies, and that seems to work well for blocking trackers.

I want to keep my location and email from being mined by trackers, so I'd appreciate that as well as a cookie monster.

Ads are a little annoying but I probably wouldn't use ad blockers if I knew that shutting down a window or quitting the browser would delete the cookies and prevent tracking.

So I'll try DDG when it's available.

I have it on my 'Phone but haven't used it at all, just the search engine, in Safari.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

You need the newest version of the DDG browser on your phone, then under Settings, you go to more from DDG, and there are some Betas you can sign up for.
