Simple search takes 20-30 seconds using DDG, <1 second using Google. Speed is fine using Firefox

Not knowinf anything about your operatiing environment (OS, versions, etc) I tested using Safari (current versions) with Windows 10 and MacOS and it performed just fine. I suggest trying to flush Safari`s cache and disabling all extensions to help determine the source of the issue

this remains a problem, now through El Capitan to Sierra. DDG searches on Safari take approx 30 seconds. Same search on Firefox takes 2 seconds. I primarily use Safari. DDG is so slow that I have to utilize another search engine when using Safari.

Have you tried the suggestions given in my previous post? I just tested using Safari 10 on macOS Sierra and am unable to replicate what you are seeing:

I wonder if it is not the same issue as https://duck.co/forum/thread/22754/slow-...

Are you still experiencing this issue?

If so, can you go to https://duckduckgo.com/settings, click "Show Bookmarklet and Settings Data" in the right column and copy the cookie data here? Or feel free to reach out directly if you don't want to share publicly (brian@duckduckgo.com).

Clearing website data fixed the issue. If I get it again, I'll share the cookie data.
