Why should I use DuckDuckGo instead of Google?

#1 — Google tracks you. We don’t.
....
#2 — Block Google trackers lurking everywhere.
...
#3 — Get unbiased results, outside the Filter Bubble.

...
#4 — We listen.
...
#5 — We don’t try to trap you in our “ecosystem.”
...
#6 — We have !bangs.
...
#7 — We strive for a world where you have control over your personal information.
...
#8 — Our search results aren’t loaded up with ads.
...
#9 — Search without fear.
...
#10 — Google is simply too big, and too powerful.

...

Sometimes I use duckduckgo or ixquick for privacy.

same here.
I use "startpage.com" (the other face of ixquick) 90% of the time at home.
duckduckgo occasionally google only when I want a 3rd opinion.
Never been a google fan.

Same here. I just tried it and it appeared to return results just as fast as Google. I have added a link to it just next to my google link so that I can use it to see how it does.
