DuckDuckGo is preparing the introduction of a desktop version of its privacy-oriented browser

Tech Highlights:

  • The blog post also mentioned a number of privacy features that DuckDuckGo has released this year for its mobile apps. For instance, an Email Protection feature has been designed to remove trackers from emails. It also recently unveiled the App Tracking Protection feature on Android which is said to block third-party companies such as Google and Facebook from tracking other apps. DuckDuckGo is using OS-provided rendering engines to develop its desktop browsers. According to a report by The Verge, The browser will use Edge/ Chromium on PC and Safari/ Webkit on macOS systems for rendering. However, all the remaining features are being developed from the ground up by DuckDuckGo.

  • DuckDuckGo has revealed that it is developing a desktop privacy-focused browser. The company now offers browsers for Android and iOS that claim to protect your online activities from third-party trackers. With its new Web browser, DuckDuckGo hopes to bring these privacy capabilities to desktop users. Its goal is to provide “an everyday browsing app” that includes strong privacy protection by default in search, browsing, email, and other areas. DuckDuckGo CEO Gabriel Weinberg made the announcement via a blog post. The browser will come with all privacy features enabled by default, and there will be no service levels. DuckDuckGo aspires to create a browser for everyday usage that protects users’ search and browsing histories from corporations. The desktop browser will include a clean and simple layout, as well as the Fire button from the mobile versions, which clears all tabs and browsing data instantaneously.

The browser is reportedly in closed beta on macOS and the Windows version is expected to be unveiled soon. DuckDukcGo claims that early tests have indicated that its browser is significantly faster than Chrome on desktop. There has been no word from the company regarding an official release date of the browser. What are the best phones of 2021? We discuss this on Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast.
