The DuckDuckGo browser is now available for Mac. While in beta

The well-known privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo is finally available for macOS as a full-fledged browser.

The DuckDuckGo browser is now available for Mac.  While in beta

The developers yesterday announced the launch of a beta version of DuckDuckGo for Mac, with a version for Windows coming later.

Like our mobile app, DuckDuckGo for Mac is an all-in-one privacy solution for everyday browsing without complicated settings, just for convenient personal use

Using an app designed to protect your privacy by default not only reduces invasive tracking, it also speeds up browsing and eliminates many everyday annoyances such as cookie consent pop-ups. Here’s what you need to know:

  • DuckDuckGo for Mac provides privacy by default. With a single download, you get our built-in private search engine, a powerful tracker blocker, new cookie pop-up protection on approximately 50% of websites, a Fire button (one-click data clearing), email protection and more – all for free. No complicated privacy settings, just simple protection that works by default.
  • DuckDuckGo for Mac is super fast! By using your computer’s built-in website rendering engine (the same as Safari) and blocking trackers before they’re loaded (unlike all major browsers), you’ll get really fast performance. We’re already outperforming Chrome in some graphics performance metrics (using Motion Mark 1.2.), and as an added benefit, by blocking trackers, DuckDuckGo uses about 60% less data than Chrome!
  • DuckDuckGo for Mac is built for security. Our built-in smart encryption ensures you visit the encrypted (HTTPS) version of the website more often, and blocking our tracker means less exposure to third-party scripts that might try to access your data. And we design our product in such a way that in-app data such as history, bookmarks and passwords is only stored locally on your device by default and is not available to DuckDuckGo

The DuckDuckGo browser is now available for Mac.  While in beta

To become a beta tester, you need to download the mobile browser for iPhone and join a private waiting list in its settings.

The sensor is supposed to be installed on the ceiling in the kitchen. When smoke is detected, McDelivery Detector will prompt the user not to bother with further cooking, but simply to order something from the McDonalds assortment instead of what burned out on the stove or microwave. If the user agrees, the order is automatically routed to the nearest McDonalds restaurant.

McDelivery Detector is only available as part of an advertising campaign in the Netherlands. In order to enter the giveaway and get one of the sensors, participants in the game must submit examples of “their worst culinary mistakes.”
