DuckDuckGo Traffic Skyrockets After NSA Leaks, Apple-integration

DuckDuckGo, a privacy-focused search engine, has seen astronomic growth in traffic the last two years, a sign that could mean privacy is becoming a mainstream concern for people online after years as a fringe issue.
In fact, usage has grown 600% since 2013, DuckDuckGo CEO Gabe Weinberg told CNBC. Weinberg credits the uptick to the National Security Agency (NSA) leaks from the same year, which revealed widespread electronic surveillance by the U.S. government and created a demand for better privacy on the web.
