Privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo has reportedly removed the search results for many popular pirate sites. Sites include The Pirate Bay, 1337x, and Fmovies.com. Several YouTube ripping services have disappeared too and even the homepage of the open-source software youtube-mp3 is unavailable. The site does not keep a record of users’ IP addresses or other sensitive information. Google actively alters its algorithms to downrank pirate sites such as Pirate Bay proxies, according to a TorrentFreak report. The search engine has launched an all-new browser for Mac in beta for the Mac OSX in recent months. The company had said that like its mobile app, DuckDucksGo for Mac is an all in-one privacy solution for everyday browsing . . .
