But that's like searching with google lol
If you want results from Google you should use Startpage. It shows you result from Google, but it is private.

It obviously is. But it is a quick way to access Google when DDG is your default search engine.

Just be aware that that's the same as using google directly. You lose all the privacy provided by DDG. It's a simple redirect of the search request. Anyway, I like the "bangs" (that's how they call them) a lot. Especially for using them in my browser's search bar. !wiki something (Wikipedia), !gt something (Google Translate), ... endless possibilities!
