Debian changes Chromium’s default search engine to DDG for privacy reasons

Debian changed the Chromium browser’s default search engine from Google to DuckDuckGo , citing privacy reasons. Chromium is an open source project for Chrome, but still includes Google’s services. The Debian developers discussed replacing Google with DDG earlier this year. It does this through a managed policy file (/etc/chromium/policies/managed/.json). Users can still modify the default search engine by themselves.
