The DuckDuckGo browser for Mac beta has a trick that YouTube won’t like, but you will

DuckDuckGo’s privacy-focused web browser is now available for download via an open beta for all Mac users. It’s still about keeping your personal data private, but some intriguing new features are also mixed in.

Over the past few months, the company has been steadily working on a desktop version of the DuckDuckGo browser. Originally, the desktop browser launched as closed beta in April (opens in a new tab), and apparently, everything that was present then is in this new version. This includes things like “multiple layers of defense against third party trackers”, according to the announcement (opens in a new tab). The new features are focused on improving the user experience by eliminating annoying ads on YouTube, in particular. The developers also added some basic browser features that were missing in the first beta such as a bookmark bar and pinned tabs.
