Jonathan Christopher on his less than stellar DuckDuckGo experience:
I’m about 3 weeks in and so far I’d rate DuckDuckGo about a 7 out of 10. The search takes longer, and results are not what I expect. I often find myself hitting the 5th or 6th link instead of the first I found very common when using Google.
His complaint isn’t uncommon. I have had a lot of people switch to DuckDuckGo as a result of my comments about it here — personally I love it — but it is slower than Google.
I, however, have not had less relevant results — in fact I think the results on DuckDuckGo are of a far higher quality than what I get out of Google.
