DuckDuckGo Homepage with widgets

<hidden> anonymous
Created: 4 years and 11 months ago
It would be nice to make DuckDuckGo.com one's homepage, but be able to embed a few widgets for information that is often gathered from the Internet. In my case, for example, I'd like to be able to add a widget for current stock-market quotes for several stocks I own or am interested in, and a weather widget for current weather and 3 or 5 day forecast for my location.

So, a home page a bit more like my.yahoo.com? I'm sure that some would like that and others wouldn't.

I think that, since DDG is a search engine, the devs would be reluctant to add the overhead (development, resources, support, licensing) needed. Additionally, making this functionality cross-platform\browser compatible would be no easy task.

I'd suggest using add-ons\extensions to your web browser for this type of functionality. I use both customizable stock market and weather add-ons for FF and they work just great.
