While sharing the news that you could win a DuckDuckGo T-shirt, Norwegian developer Opera Software had nothing but words of praise for DuckDuckGo, the general purpose search engine that is installed as a default search engine in the Opera web browser. Opera Software called DuckDuckGo a model internet citizen and really appreciated the fact that the search engine respects the user’s privacy.

“[DuckDuck Go is] a model Internet citizen, especially when it comes to privacy. DuckDuckGo doesn't track you, nor does it store personal information like IP addresses or user agents. It even lets you use URL parameters instead of cookies to store settings,” said Opera Software’s Anna Rohleder.


That is just part of the functionality DuckDuckGo has to offer. If you would like to find out more about what DuckDuckGo has to offer, just visit this webpage – I am going to move on to the part about having the chance to win a DuckDuckGo T-shirt.

To help spread the word about DuckDuckGo, Opera Software is running a contest and is giving you the change to win a DuckDuckGo T-shirt. The contest focuses on testing your level of DuckDuckGo knowledge. If you visit the contest site here, you will be asked 5 questions about DuckDuckGo (please note that you need a My Opera account to take part in the competition). If you get the answers to all 5 questions right, you might win an official DuckDuckGo T-shirt.

So if you want to win a DuckDuckGo official T-shirt, it pays to click the link above and find out more about DuckDuckGo and the functionality it has to offer. Once you’ve familiarized yourself with the search engine, you have until the 16th of January to take part in the competition.

In related news, back in November the Linux Mint team announced that it signed a partnership with DuckDuckGo. As part of that partnership DuckDuckGo is the default search engine in Linux Mint 12 codename “Lisa”.
