It's French so it has that as a strike against them but I like it....interface between google and bing with the privacy of duckduckgo

That and they claim Security, privacy and no tracking.

From Wikipedia

By virtue of being based in Europe, users gain some protection from the more stringent European privacy laws. Qwant pro-actively offers protections based on the new General Data Protection Regulation, which will take effect in 2018.

Qwant seems to take numerous technical precautions to limit third parties from gaining insight into users search queries. For example, image search results don't notify the websites on which the images are originally displayed, by routing the images through its own server first.
The websites also makes note of its resistance to French government surveillance in its privacy statement:

"Regarding the French law on intelligence passed on 24 June 2015, we found that the recommendations of the CNIL had gained very little currency: as a search engine, we emphatically do not endorse the measures adopted, especially as they are particularly intrusive from the point of view of individual privacy. Accordingly, we will make every effort to ensure the protection of our users' personal data".

I tried it and it's a bit slow with images. There is content that you don't get on Google. I like it.
