Google has quietly added the DuckDuckGo search engine option to the Chromium engine in about 60 markets. As a popular web browser, we are happy to see that in the recently updated Chromium 73 stable release, the search giant has expanded the choice of users around the world. Earlier, Google experienced more and more privacy and antitrust investigations.
In order to balance the market environment and help small technology innovation companies get rid of the shadow of technology giants, many governments are already active. Also in the changelog on GitHub, Google software engineer Orin Jaworski wrote that – based on recent statistics collected, we are considering replacing the list of search engines for each country.
For this matter, DuckBeuckGo founder Gabe Weinberg said in an interview: “We’re glad that Google has recognized the importance of offering consumers a private search option.” It is reported that DuckDuckGo has achieved steady growth over the years and has recently accepted external investments to cater to the growing demand for privacy products in the international market.
