DuckDuckGo slams Google after EU cartel decision



Following a $ 5 billion anti-competitive bid by Google for its Android products, the competing search engine DuckDuckGo claims that the company's antitrust issues are not stopping there.

The claim came in a tweets from the DuckDuckGo Twitter account in response to the punishment. In them, the search engine claims that the company's "anticompetitive search behavior is not limited to Android," but it also exists in other products, such as the Chrome browser. "Every time we update our Chrome browser extension, all of our users are faced with an official-looking dialogue asking them to reset their search settings and disable the entire extension," the tweet said.

DuckDuckGo also points out that Google currently owns the domain name "duck.com" and has it since at least 201

1. That's when potential users enter the lesser known search engine in the seemingly similar address, they are then redirected to Google, "which confuses DuckDuckGo users consistently," the company said. A report from Independent indicates that the domain was registered before the company was founded, but it is unclear exactly when it fell under Google's ownership rights.
