French company founded in 2012, has just launched an all-in-one website creation platform that allows users to build and launch sites that automatically adapt to a range of devices without needing to know any code at all.


While drag-and-drop website tools are nothing new, they often take a bit of manual tweaking – or you later find that a subsequent update has broken part of the site, or certain elements don’t play nicely together. Pikock claims, however, that it doesn’t just focus on being easy to use.....

Search Engine DuckDuckGo Is Taking On Google By Doing The One Thing They Won't Do

Search Engine DuckDuckGo Is Taking On Google By Doing The One Thing They Won't Do | Top Social Media Tools | Scoop.it

They won't track you and it makes their searches better.Named after the playground game duck duck goose, the site is not just banking on the support of people paranoid about GCHQ and the NSA.


Its founder, Gabriel Weinberg, argues that privacy makes the web search better, not worse. Since it doesn't store your previous searches, it does not and cannot present personalized search results. That frees users from the filter bubble – the fear that, as search results are increasingly personalized, they are less likely to be presented with information that challenges their existing ideas....
