Last night I upgraded to the Lion version of Apple Inc’s operating system. for shits and giggles i searched around for what to do first after installing the system and since daringfireball.net is a fanboy i figured he would have some good stuff to read about.

So in Chrome I entered “daringfireball.net lion” which will do a search of that domain for pages talking about ‘lion’. To my surprise it brought up duckduckgo.com which is a search engine I have never heard of.

At first I was worried something was wrong with Chrome but now I see that DuckDuckGo.com has been integrated into DaringFireball.net’s site. Given Gruber’s growing criticism of Google I see the political aspects of making this decision. I wonder if there is any compensation involved as well?

There are currently no posts on the Fireball about duckduckgo:
