From the press release:
The most recent edition of PC-BSD updates the suggestion list of the search bar with DuckDuckGo to provide users with a discreet, clutter-free search option. Additionally, DuckDuckGo offers many benefits including the ability to use shortcuts to directly search many websites and instant answers that provide topic summaries from a variety of web sources.
PC-BSD users concerned with security can be confident in the knowledge that requests submitted through DuckDuckGo will remain confidential. â€œWe are pleased to make DuckDuckGo available to PC-BSD users, providing a reliable, yet completely anonymous search experience,â€? says Kris Moore, Director of PC-BSD Software Development at iXsystems.
â€œWe are delighted to partner with PC-BSD,â€? says Gabriel Weinberg, DuckDuckGoâ€™s founder and CEO. â€œDuckDuckGo and PC-BSD have a shared philosophy on the value of open source and choice.â€?
