i just noticed that when i send a a search query the URL isnt encrypted!
this is a huge flaw in security and privacy that means that if someone is sniffin my network he can know what im searching! its a real issue that has to be taken care of fast.
the query i sent (both via address bar and via searchBox (both using Firefox(18.0.2) only): https://duckduckgo.com/?q=%D7%9E%D7%A9%D7%90%D7%99%D7%AA+%D7%92%D7%96+%D7%A0%D7%90%D7%A6%D7%99%D7%AA
if you decode the URL you get the same search query , thats bad guys.
my suggestion is to make a plugin that encrypts it with a key that only duckdudckgo.com servers can decrypt that way its one way encryption and effectively closing the https (ssl) security hole.
also, it doesnt mean that the q get have to be gone, you can change it to like e(for encrypted) or just make a prefix for all encrypted querys.
