[ExI] DuckDuckGo

I saw a troubling sign today. Literally. The sign was on a bus shelter, 
and it was an advert for DuckDuckGo.

I presume some of you here use it instead of the dreaded G-word search 
engine, and it trumpets how it preserves privacy (the advert features a 
blurred/pixellated face).

The trouble I see is that if they are so big now that they're 
advertising to the public, they are big enough to be a target for bigger 
fish to swallow or subvert. So I'm starting to think about lining up 
some alternatives that are similarly privacy-oriented but still small. 
Any suggestions?
