startpage.com is better than duckduckgo - it submits your search to google but anonymizes it.
I’ve been playing with firefox plus containers - it essentially creates a new browser footprint when you launch a container and so the other tabs don’t know what you are looking at. Facebook, gmail, twitter, amazon are all banished to their own containers and can’t use their cookies to track me on other sites. I can fire off an amazon container to search for products without forever having them as suggestions on my amazon front page, browse without facebook knowing my every move, etc. I love it.
Add on ublock-origin (which kills google analytics on here, sorry monzo) and if you really hate trackers umatrix, and you can start to confound the parasites.
