More Anti-Google Services

Lavabit comes highly recommended from reader Daniel R. as a better email option than Hush for private email. It is cheaper and offers more.

Update: You go to ‘Preferences’ on the Lavabit homepage to upgrade to the paid account — it’s not a very intuitive website (to say the least).

Safari Keyword Search comes recommended from reader Simon R. as a better way to use DuckDuckGo in Safari. I have tried this before and it is a solid way to do it, but you have to type something like d preceding your search. That was enough of a hassle on an everyday basis to get me to edit my hosts file instead.
