DuckDuckGo – Search Engine

11 Nov

Are you looking for a new search engine…. try DuckDuckGo.com.

DuckDuckGo has an interesting setting option that lets searchers use Web of Trust (WOT) ratings next to each result instead of favicons.

  1. begin your search
  2. click on “More”, a drop down menu will appear
  3. click on “Setting”
  4. click on the drop down menu of “Site Icons”
  5. Select “Just WOT (trust) ratings” — There is an option for “ALL WOT and favions (both)”.

The WOT ratings are based on a traffic light model with red for low, yellow for medium, and green for high level of trust.

Clicking an icon will link to more details from WOT.
