the release
of Tor browser 6.0. This release brings the browser
up-to-date with Firefox 45-ESR, which provides better support for HTML5
video on Youtube, as well as a host of other improvements. DuckDuckGo is
now the default search engine. “Lately, we got a couple of comments on our blog and via email wondering why we are now using DuckDuckGo as the default search engine and not Disconnect anymore.

Disconnect being more a meta search engine which allows users to choose between different search providers fell back to delivering Bing search results which were basically unacceptable quality-wise. While Disconnect is still trying to fix the situation we asked them to change the fallback to DuckDuckGo as their search results are strictly better than the ones Bing delivers.
