    No, Ixquick/Startpage have no connection with DDG, so figures shouldn't include their stats, if that's what you mean? But I'd say, regardless, that all these type of search engines must have seen increased usage since the sad demise of Scroogle.

    About DDG: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DuckDuckGo

    I've been using all three (and trying a few others) for long time now, and when I first used DDG I thought it was going to be better than, and I'd prefer it to Ixquick/Startpage, but over time I've reverted to using Startpage, and feel it gives the most extensive, numerous, and accurate search results.
