A change I have made recently is moving my searches on the web from Google to DuckDuckGo. DuckDuckGo is a more private search engine that does not hold your private data or pass it along to third parties. Unlike, say, Google. I am finding this new search engine to be a joy to use. I do not see a lot of differences between results and without the "personal" results that Google adds when you are logged in, I think in some ways they are better. Google's results are often filled with garbage from social sources and informational link farms (many of my students fall prey to these too when doing research). If you are trying to divest a bit from companies that attack your privacy, DuckDuckGo is a great choice.
