So why not just freeze it with no updates?

How much effort would that be?

I would love to go back to Google c. 1990’s to see if was as good as I remember it.

I believe it would be a security risk to have an unmaintained version of the website.

I wonder how the BBC do it?

Exactly how many security issues can there be in website that doesn’t ask for personal details and doesn’t track you. What are the hackers going to steal?

If it is all too much for DDG why not make it open source, put it in the public domain and let someone else maintain it?

Have fun with that! :)

Thanks for that, I got all nostalgic.

Unfortunately it’s only a snap shot of the page; the search behind it doesn’t work.
