DuckDuckGo to Google bookmarklet

DuckDuckGo is a great search engine that doesn’t track you. Unfortunately, Google still returns better results for some (increasingly fewer) searches.

The following bookmarklet takes your DuckDuckGo search and switches to Google:

javascript:(function(){$('.js-search-input').val('!g '+$('.js-search-input').val());$('.js-search-form').submit();})()

To install the bookmarklet, drag the following link to your favorites bar:

g!

Next time you do a DuckDuckGo search and want to try for better results, click the bookmark and see what Google has to offer.

Feel free to contact me if you require development services or have any questions / comments.
