My OLD computer is on its last leg and my IT guy has one about ready for me. When I talked to him about DuckDuckGo he said he thought I'd like BRAVE and wants me to try it.

Anyone ever heard of it.......likes, dislikes? I'm just a casual user so I don't need anything fancy.

Yay.....Nay.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.

I never heard of Duck duck go. Don't have a clue what it is.

Hey look! It's a ...
We've been using duck duck go here at HQ for awhile now -- Love it. It's a simple free search engine that doesn't track you or sell your info to third parties. I think Brave is similar, but Consumer Reports liked DDG so we went with it.

I've never heard of either of them. Mozilla has been good for me so far (going on at least 10 years now). Interesting to read that Brave was created by one of the original Mozilla founders. Going to check them both out.

So duck duck go is a search engine and Brave is a browser? Is that correct?
