DuckDuckGo under fire for letting through Microsoft-scripts by its browser.
It has come to an agreement with Microsoft not to block Microoft on third-paty-websites.
Particular scripts exist that you can add to Tampermonkey extension to again block these.

This issue with DuckDuckGo is with their DuckDuckGo browser on android.

How do browsers compare privacy-wise?
(because privacy and anonymity really do no longer exist) results are not absolute.

Just see here: https://privacytests.org/  The winner seems to be: https://librewolf.net

This is a strange turn of events for DuckDuckGo. 

Whilst I don't use the DuckDuckGo browser, the reason I find this interesting is, it isn't all that long ago that I stopped using the DuckDuckGo browser add-on and also dropped the DuckDuckGo search option in Firefox.  The main reason for that is that the DuckDuckGo add-on was too intrusive and I felt it broke some sites. 

DuckDuckGo I had also somehow became my default search engine on a couple of times in Firefox and I hadn't changed that at all and I changed it back to me default search engine.  The worst part was the results on DuckDuckGo  searches returned a patheticly small amount of hits in the search (useless would be a good word to use).

All in all for me it has gone downhill very rapidly.

How license plate scanners challenge our data privacy

https://youtu.be/orNe0T4VQpg
There's a massive amount of data in private hands
and without sufficient controls by the government.
My thanks to David Strom for his excellent article.
