The privacy-first search engine DuckDuckGo is developing a DuckDuckGo browser for desktop platforms with robust privacy protections that work by default.
Anyone that searches the web all the time will find value in something that can make that job easier, and that’s just one reason why a newly released jailbreak tweak called DockSearch by iOS developer ginsudev could be of interest; especially if this unique categorization applies to you.
If you ever find yourself in a situation where you’re reading an article or website and want to know more about whatever it is you’re reading about, then you might feel fired up to launch a web browser and begin a search engine query by way of Google, DuckDuckGo, or another search engine of your choosing. But what if you didn’t need to bother opening another app to do this?
That’s the idea behind a newly released and free jailbreak tweak called SITUM by iOS developers R0wDrunner and MegaDev, and as you might’ve discerned for yourself in the screenshot examples above, this tweak lets you initiate a search engine query from virtually anywhere in iOS via the native Action Menu that appears when you begin highlighting a string of text.
Private search engine DuckDuckGo announced Tuesday that it's now switched to privacy-focused Apple Maps services to “set a new standard of trust online” for address and map searches on desktop and mobile. DuckDuckGo is one of the search engines natively supported as an option in Safari for iPhone, iPad and Mac.
