This topic is a continuation of the older "DDG in Alternative Web browsers"
topic, which after 100+ replies became somewhat difficult to navigate.
From Yegg's original topic:
I've been trying to get DDG into the default list of Web browser search engines wherever possible. The big ones (Chromium, Mozilla, IE, Safari) are very difficult to get on a budget, but the smaller ones may be possible.
If you're involved with any of them, doing something like Mithrandir did for Trisquel on this thread may be the way to go.
That is, bring it up on the project mailing list or IRC channel. Clearly the more inside someone is the better.
As far as I know the only ones it is in there for right now are:
Other good targets I know of (I'm sure there are many others, and linux distros count too):
- Avant Browser
- Epic Browser
As for the big guys:
- Firefox - talked to the right guy, but isn't interested at our level (probably wants rev share).
- Safari - no contact
- IE - no contact
- Chromium - asked on the mailing list; they said it is the top 3 in each country.
