DuckDuckGo’s changes through 2021 have been seen as a success. The DuckDuckGo desktop app is in the testing phase and is expected to launch soon.
Gabriel Weinberg, DuckDuckGo CEO and Founder discussed the upcoming desktop browser in a blog post. The DuckDuckGo desktop app was deemed to be cleaner, more private, and faster than Chrome in early tests.
DuckDuckGo Desktop App Teased
DuckDuckGo has launched new features like Email protection and app tracking protection in 2021. These features have made their browser app available even when there is no internet connection. It means you are able to browse the web locally on your phone.
The company has decided to add a desktop app to its list of services. Weinberg is in favor of strong privacy protection in the form of settings that are not confusing, warnings that are not misleading, and privacy protections that work with default settings across multiple devices.
He also added that the DuckDuckGo desktop browser isn’t based on Chromium or anything like it. Regarding your PC, it will use an OS-providing rendering engine. It features an interface that is easy to use which makes it easier when navigating the internet.
DuckDuckGo has been downloaded 150 million times and now serves 100 million private searches each day.
Privacy Super App
DuckDuckGo is considered one of the simplest and most private browsers you can get. It keeps users anonymous, unlike competitors that track your browsing habits. Want to get your privacy back? With this browser, you are able to block email trackers, stop applications from tracking your data, and clear all browsing history with the click of a button.
This means you can use these features no matter which operating system you operate on. Bringing these same functions to your desktop browser will make it much more private.
For example, with Email Protection enabled you can use the DuckDuckGo desktop browser. It lets you quickly block spam and share your email address should you choose to. In this way, you can keep unwanted marketing messages from clogging your inbox.
That could be one of the reasons why DuckDuckGo may be a great private browser option. We’ll let you know about the browser’s real-world performance once it launches.
Today, we are thrilled to be able to share that we will soon be launching a new desktop app! This app is in response to the increased usage of DuckDuckGo on desktops, and we hope it will make it easier for people to use DuckDuckGo as their search engine of choice. Stay tuned for more information about the new app, coming soon!Spread the love
