kinda hypocritical to say so considering ddg are themselves:

  • a ₽rivat€ ¢ompan¥

  • ba$€d in th€ U$

  • ho$t€d on A₩$

  • ¢lo$€d $our¢€

  • bro₩$€r ba$€d on ¢hromium

  • $€ar¢h €ngin€ do€$n’t hav€ it$ o₩n ¢ra₩l€r$, u$€$ on€$ b¥ M$

😉

pretty sure ddg is in the business of greenprivacy-washing - -
