DuckDuckGo started out as a search engine with the goal of enhanced privacy and has gradually spread to other areas. A DuckDuckGo mobile browser is still available, with built-in privacy protection, a filter for email messages, and more. Now, DuckDuckGo has rolled up its sleeves for a desktop web browser, although you’ll have to wait a while to try it.

DuckDuckGo announced in its annual roundup that the company is working on a desktop web browser to complement existing DuckDuckGo apps that are already available on iOS and Android. “As we do on mobile devices, DuckDuckGo for desktop will redefine users’ daily online privacy expectations. No complicated settings, no misleading alerts, no “levels” of privacy protection. It has strong privacy protection that only works by default on search, browsing, email and more. This is not a “privacy scanner”. ” says.

The browser will not be based on Chromium, the open source version of Google Chrome like most popular alternative web browsers (including Brave, Microsoft Edge, Vivaldi). Instead, DuckDuckGo will use the rendering engine provided by the operating system it’s running on, such as existing mobile apps that should have Edge Chromium (WebView2) on Windows and WebKit (Safari) on macOS. The company underlines that they found the browser significantly faster than Chrome in early tesdollarser. Using the operating system’s own engine also means that DuckDuckGo will not be responsible for quickly patching security vulnerabilities. Additionally, this means the browser won’t be as feature-packed as Chrome or Edge

Finally, it should be noted that DuckDuckGo does not mention a specific time frame for the desktop web browser to be released.
