DuckDuckGo vs. Google

Screenshot comparison of Google and DuckDuckGo

Notice how DuckDuckGo (right) makes the search results the center of the page. Google doesn't do that. When asking the most simplest questions, DuckDuckGo would give you many resources about the question. Google doesn't do that.

Screenshot comparison of DuckDuckGo and Google with map search

Google focused on the restaurants in Center City, Philadelphia. DuckDuckGo broadens the search of the whole city of Philadelphia. Google uses their own reviews. DuckDuckGo uses Yelp for reviews.
