Privacy: DuckDuckGo does not collect or store your search data or browsing history. It also does not forward your search terms to unintended servers, and allows you to use an anonymous proxy called Tor for your connections.
Instant Answers: When you enter a search term, some information is provided instantly above the search results. This might be all the data you need, so there might not be a need to click other links to get what you want. It is highlighted in a box above the search results.
Less Spam and Clutter: DuckDuckGo blacklists sites that are merely there to present advertising. How many times have you clicked on a site only to be shown links to ads related to your search terms with nothing else useful?
The privacy features alone make this a worthy replacement for Google, Bing, or Yahoo! If you would like to add it to your Google Chrome web browser, you can install the Chrome Add On, or follow these simple instructions to make it your default search engine:
Go to Options -> Basics -> Search/Manage Search Engines. at the bottom of the page it allows you to add a custom search engine. In "Add New Search Engine" type in 'DuckDuckGo'. For "Keyword" enter 'duckduckgo.com'. For "URL with %s in place of query" enter 'https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%s'. Click outside the area, then click on your new entry and select "Make Default". You are now done and have DuckDuckGo as your default search engine.
There you have it. Give DuckDuckGo a try and see if it works for you.
