    how privacy aimed is FF (and DDG) really?

    if you install ff as is, there is absolutely no defense for privacy users

    I realize ff gets a nice chunk from google to add them as a search engine, but somehow I have a feeling they have more of a backdoor or partnership with ff and they are no longer pro privacy as they used to be.

    I think its by default made to be this way. if they were so privacy focused, it wouldnt need so much "hardening" and even then I feel it doesnt matter and it goes through the backdoor, like MS has led google through with windows 11 and not much to do. as much as I try to get away from google fb and even keep ms at bay by never upgrading from w7, I think its a lost battle. like trying to catch water through a seive.

    I also feel duckduckgo has also gone this route.

    The privacy thing can be achieved, it just takes reading and work, and it will be cumbersome. It's getting to the point you should know how to code and compile yourself.

    Check out Swisscows or Startpage. Mycroft Project: Search Engine Plugins - Firefox IE Chrome

    Now your use of acronyms for everything has me laughing. For example. What if you tried to install a FFS? Can you even imagine the massive f*** storm of thunderous F*** thunder if it were installed in Kubernetes!? :O
