DuckDuckGo browser for Mac beta has one trick YouTube won’t like – but you will

Software



DuckDuckGo’s privacy-focused web browser is now available for download via an open beta to all Mac users. It’s still all about keeping your personal details private but does mix in some intriguing new features, as well.

For the past several months, the company has been steadily working on a desktop version of the DuckDuckGo browser. Originally, the desktop browser launched as a closed beta back in April (opens in new tab), and from the looks of it, everything that was present back then is in this new version.  This includes things like the “multiple layers of defense against third-party trackers”, according to the announcement (opens in new tab). The new features are centered around enhancing the user experience by clearing out annoying ads on YouTube, specifically. The developers also added some basic browser features that were missing in the first beta like a bookmarks bar and pinned tabs.
