If you don’t want to use Google’s search services because you’re worried about all the data the company could potentially be collecting on you, then chances are you might be familiar with DuckDuckGo. For those who aren’t, this is an alternative search engine that’s meant to offer up a more private experience.

However, the fact that you need to use another browser such as Google Chrome to use it might raise some concerns for some users, but we have some good news. In a post by DuckDuckGo, the company has announced that they will be building their own desktop browser for computer users..

What’s interesting about this is that unlike other browsers such as Microsoft Edge that built their browser on Chromium, DuckDuckGo claims that their browser has been built from the ground up. “Instead of forking Chromium or anything else, we’re building our desktop app around the OS-provided rendering engines (like on mobile), allowing us to strip away a lot of the unnecessary cruft and clutter that’s accumulated over the years in major browsers.”

There was no mention of when the browser will be released, but for those who are growing increasingly concerned about companies like Google or Microsoft collecting your data while you browse, then this could be something to look out for in 2022.
