I hate almost everything about it. Especially the auto-completion...Autosuggest or whatever they are calling it these days.

I switched to google to get away from yahoo's satanically annoying clown show.
google was nice, quiet, unobtrusive...and was fine at first. Then look what happend...and yes what a nerve making you keep cookies to save your settings (Auto Complete Off!!)

I switched to DDG to get away from google's new annoying and useless 'enhancements'.
Now it seems to be happening again here with DDG.

URL Parameters are nice but wheretf is the setting to turn Autosuggest off?
Cloud shmoud... a PITA like the URL Parameters.

How about another url without all the stupid flare? 'duckduckgo-nobs.com' or something where there is nothing but a text box and a button...almost like it used to be.

HI, I did not select the whole appt., just the search, and making duck my open page; something like that.

My main reason for abandoning google, was that I was looking for a free movie< ok? I stopped doing that; there are no NEW free movies anywhere; they are all blocked,even you tube) but guess what was happeniing to my google searches? they were getting cut off, and blocked. it finally showed up on the detail, as "O.S.N.Oregon Survelliance Network", a website. They were indicated as the "Security" blocking me off on google from even LOOKING, SEARCHING for a free movie on google, on the Web! So here in Oregon, I was cut off in the state of Oregon, USA, and it wws google they were latching onto.

BOY, is that enough to make you paranoid? I called up my favorite local radio show, here in Eugene-Springfield, OR, and told about it, to them, right over the air.The guys on the radio instantly looked up "O.S.N." and the info, claimed they were a gambling-casino-security co. HA HA. SO if that's true, why did they sign their detaill as the people censoring my link? i was not searching for casinos! The guys on the radio laughed, and said"they CLAIM to be a casino security co,. itt might not be true at all!"and the radio host said, "everything you say, or do on line is now spied on! you cannot get any privacy on it, even searches or email."

They were right, so I have dumped google for duckduckgo search. Your ad says duck is not tracking you.I'm so sick of all of googles' intrusiveness!! If I wanta look for a free movie, hey, there are free legal movies too!Excuse the bad typing; I see now that ALL THE WEB IS SPIED ON NOW, and there's no freedom left on it.

But I am giving duck-search a go, because google seems to let spying go on,, & track everything you do on google. Even a local Oregon survelliance network. (O.S.N.) I was not miistaken about them cutting off my search. I wonder now if other states in the USA, have their own "state survaillance Network" too. Here, I am going to try & avoid taking any new apps or stuff, except for duckduckgo search engine. (and open page. (HOW DO I PUT A GIF OFF MT DOWNLOADS, ONTO THIS NOTE? ANYONE KNOW?) Thank you.
