Best Time Tracking Apps I was going to give Klok a try, and I had downloaded it, downloaded and installed Adobe Air Runtime, and was playing around with it a little. However, then I noticed how much CPU time it's using when it's sitting there doing nothing. The lowest CPU% I saw in Activity Monitor was 20%, and on many screens with NOTHING changing (even once I move the mouse off and give something else focus) it would use 70%+ CPU. Being on a laptop, this is unacceptable. This could be due to inefficient coding, or it could just be to an efficient Runtime. Based on an Activity Monitor Sample of the process, it looks like it's doing a lot of binary decoding, but since it was sitting there doing nothing that must mean that it has a poor (or no) cache of decoded operations.

Duck Duck spy's too! How can an American based co., be excluded of Prism and all those shit? Watch my pearl Still trust Duck Duck & co? by topoletta May 28

So glad this is out for anyone to use! I am so sick of google tracking me! I go onto a website with google and weeks later that company is advertizing on my computer?! How did this happen?! Google sells information! No more with the duck! (: by aaronshaunbrennan Oct 6

It resolved my problem of lazily doing a google search rather than navigating to the source I might really prefer to search first. Using most any other engine would be a step backward in terms of efficient accessibility to web resources and privacy. by tor.nelson Jul 7

I've been using DuckDuckGo for quite a while now. I started on account of their privacy policy, at the same time as installing DNT+ to block trackers. What sold me on it was the use of bangs to redirect your search to return the results from other sites. If I want to search google, google images, bing,, their thesaurus, the etymological dictionary, you tube, facebook ..., I just add the corresponding bang to my DuckDuckGo search. If you just type the bang without a search term, it will take you to the site. Even if you want to use Google for things like calculations and conversions, they will still work passing them through DuckDuckGo and redirecting to Google with a !g. by tor.nelson Jun 30

off topic but.... SRware Iron is what you want if you don't like FFox. It is a Chrome port and is considered the safest graphical browser around. Try Been running it for years. by fedorageeks Apr 13

Just a bit more demonstration of some ability to stand back ...would be perfect. by incite_media Apr 3

Firefox is not more an browser. It is a central personal internet handling management solution with all of its add-ons. Indeed, it has some errors, but less than others. Firefox is Web 3.0! The others want only a piece of the cake. If i wanted another bad only browser, i could do a timejump into the year 2000. by schenz Mar 30

Great search engine, and they don't track you, that is very important for me. I absolutely recommend it. by josh.bushong Feb 15

I'm trying it since I'm too Google-centric. I looked up a hard topic and got the exact right link at the top, and several correct links below it, so I was impressed. by alendar Feb 26

That is one thing I like is options. All search engines seem to have strong and weak points. Thats why I cross reference a few of them. It is also why I like collecting them. by suntzutao Dec 10

The differentiation is about no search leaks, ie no footprint loggued about your search items by raymondbalmes Dec 4

I did not know, but I find it quite interesting as well that help the environment, I will use it to see how it is. Thanks for the suggestion. by brygom Aug 22
