Hi Everyone,

Would anyone tell me when we use Tor Browser which search engine we need to use, either google or DuckDuckgo or it does not matter.

If you can explain me that would be much appreciated.

Thanks for your responds.

I might asking this question in a stupid way, the question is when you run the TOR browser on your OS, can I simply start the search on the URL bar or its better to go search site and start search from there.

By default I start the search on Tor URL bar once I hit enter the search page gives me 4 search engine to choose Google, Bing, Yahoo and DuckDuckGo.

Sorry but what do you mean by "better"?

Here I see no issues with using either. I would be guessing that someone wants a 0.0001% more secure or less leaky search.

That said I don't mind the Google search results.

PS. Let me expand on this.

Let's say you are using the Tor Browser and your assignment in a course on C coding included something about the printf(). Your teacher knows you are going to google it and if you change search engines maybe you get some link to an incorrect answer. You won't know it and take it as gospel.

What happens? You may get extra credit for more research or a mark for a convoluted answer when they were expecting the most given answer from a Google or book.

When you ask for best, you have to define best. And if it's about how secure it is, unless you work at the NSA the answer is conjecture.
