in thread Sometimes Perl is awesome: Duck Duck Go edition
I have found DDG good enough for most queries. It falls down on more obscure stuff -- it has a smaller index -- but I always try it first before I resort to Scroogle and Google.
DDG's !bang syntax allows to have your cake and eat it too.
If I find DDG's results inadequate, and want to continue the search with Google, I just prepend !g to my search terms. DDG will get me Google's results, with all the no-tracking goodness.
