Never had any problems with it.
of potential not realised / being massively overtaken by Google. Remember in the late 90's when Yahoo was the buzz word for searching the Net. Crazy how they let it slip really.
Honestly, I think they need to seek other revenue streams. Their search was powered by Bing for a while but I'm not sure if that is still the case.
Tumblr was a good purchase and to be honest Flickr would have been a good one if they'd adapted earlier. It's been kind negated for the mass populace by dropbox or instagram.
by NOT tracking everything maybe? One advert on their homepage (Yahoo) then no tracking for advertising purposes. DuckDuckGo has a good ethos / strategy but unfortunately it's a poor search engine.
is still there, so I can sleep easy
