LXer: How to make DuckDuckGo the default search engine in Chromium

Published at LXer:

The folks behind DuckDuckGo have been deftly positioning the search engine as one you should be using, if you are tired or want to avoid snooping by Google and others like it. It is a message that I have bought into, and I think you will too, once you get to know how Google and other search engines track and bubble you. Ok, so Chromiumís developers have not recognized DuckDuckGo as a major search engine, but that should not stop you from adding it to the list of search engines in Chromium and making it your default (search engine). This brief tutorial shows you the simple steps to make it happen.

Using Chromium you cannot avoid snooping from Google, even by using duckduckgo.
