DuckDuckGo the privacy focused search engine has finally acquired Duck.com from Google. DuckDuckGo’s CEO Gabriel Weinberg said that the new domain would make it easier for users to use the privacy focused search engine. If you type Duck.com in your Google search bar right now it would redirect you to DuckDuckGo.com.
Google got hold of Duck.com back in 2010 when it acquired On2 Technologies (earlier known as The Duck Corporation). Google’s ownership of this domain previously created a lot of frustration for DuckDuckGo because when potential users of the privacy focused search engine typed in Duck.com they were being redirected to Google, which seemed to be a matter of confusion for a lot of DuckDuckGo users. However the matter was resolved soon after that when Google added a DuckDuckGo link to the page.
