Great to see that DuckDuckGo is still growing.
Through Dec. 15, DuckDuckGo received 3.25 billion search queries this year, according to its publicly posted traffic statistics. That’s up 74% over the same period last year. Monday, Dec. 14 was its first day with more than 12 million direct queries.
Although still not in the same league as Google, I think it's only a matter of time before they start to encroach on Google's dominance of the search industry.
