Link reblogged from One Thing Well with 10 notes
This tip is pretty neat. It is based on the idea that Yahoo! is on a subdomain. Redirecting any calls to search.yahoo.com to DuckDuckGo leaves Yahoo!’s other services essentially intact.
If you use the “edit your hosts file” method, ALL of your search engines will go to DuckDuckGo if you configure it to use Yahoo instead. I tested this on Windows XP with Firefox, Safari and Chrome - no more Google search for me.
