    They are managing fine without tracking. This smells like a hit job.

    The search engine may not track, but sites still do in many forms, what the point of a non-tracking search engines if they orient you to those tracking sites.

    If DDG only list non-tracking sites, it would be great but I guess they will be out-of-business.
