Can I use Duckduckgo to search?

Hi Moldsen, how did you want to send your searches to DuckDuckGo?

One method is to start off in a browser such as Firefox or Chrome and go to the DuckDuckGo site.

Another is to set your browser to automatically use DuckDuckGo for searches. In Firefox for Android, this article has the steps to set that up: Manage my default search engines in Firefox for Android.

If you were looking for a method that works outside of Firefox or Chrome, such as a separate app, you could take a look at the DuckDuckGo browser in the Google Play store. I haven't tried it myself.
