Yeah, I've been using DDG for years, but I just can't get "Google it" out of my dictionary. I try to replace it with "Duck it", which feels stupid as fuck to say, but "Google it" doesn't feel any better.

I say "look it up". Took a while, but I managed to do it...

Yeah- I feel that in this case the whimsical name "Duckduckgo" is a liability for them. It's just hard to turn it into a verb in an unambiguous way.

I don't think it is a problem. Xerox is a thing.

i use "search for it".

i've completely removed said word from my vocabulary. it can be done. break yo' mind free!

How about "search"?
