Do you use DuckDuckGo instead of Google and something like FastMail instead of Gmail?

Just found out about your 'Security Checklist' and saw that you use most of the services mentioned there (Cloudflare DNS, 1Password, Brave). Do you also use a 'privacy-first email provider' and a 'privacy-first search engine'? Couldn't find them mentioned anywhere else on the blog.

I don't use Brave anymore, I'm on Safari full-time. Sometimes I switch to Edge/Firefox/Brave if I need to test something I'm working on, or I need better dev tools.

DuckDuckGo is also my default search engine, but if I'm in the middle of working on a development project I almost always have to add !g to redirect to a Google search, since Google seems to do a better job of indexing StackOverflow, GitHub Issues/Discussions, etc.

I did not know about the !G Thank you for sharing that.
