    DuckDuckGo is an alternate front end for Google. They claim to not store user info so they don't use it to filter searchs, there no advertising. In theory it should be faster. Here is the wiki page for it:
    DuckDuckGo - Wikipedia

    I don't know why it would pop up at random. It can be set as the default search engine, but that is an all the time setting.

    Change the DuckDuckGo page?

    How do I install DuckDuckGo as my web browser?

    Hi John,

    This is Wil, one of the independent advisor, an expert with Windows 10 and a fellow Windows 10 user like you.

    DuckDuckGo is a search engine that provides extra security for its user. You cannot install it as a browser. What you can do is set the DuckDuckGo website as the startup page for your browser so each time that you will open your browser, it will open DuckDuckGo
    right away. If you are using Edge, follow the steps below.

    1. Open Edge and click on the three dots (...) at the upper-right part of it.

    2. Click on Settings and click on "On Startup" at the left pane.

    3. Click the radio button for Open a specific page or pages and click on Add a new page and paste the DuckDuckGo URL or link on it
    DuckDuckGo — Privacy, simplified.

    4. Close and relaunch Edge.

    I hope the information I provided will help you. If you need further assistance please do reply back and I will respond as quickly as possible. Have a nice day.

    DuckDuckGo vs. Google Fail: I switched to Duck about 6 + months ago after reading about Duck's improved privacy search criteria but I have come to find out that more often then not Duck's search does not lead to the results that I am looking for. Now I am the first to admit that I might be "searching"...
