Why is it that when you type a subject in your browser, they keep showing american sites, where I would like to see UK sites as I live here.

Thanks

A point of clarification: DDG is a search provider and not a browser. A browser is the program\app like FireFox, IE, Chrome, etc. that you use to connect to web sites like DDG.

Regarding your search results, do you see any improvement by setting your region to United Kingdom? I did an over simplistic test, comparing UK region setting to None (default) and search for biscuits (as stated, overly simplistic) and the results were completely different. If you are not getting similar results can you please provide sample searches so the Devs can give it a look?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. I have DDG within FireFox and before I added DDG my search results mainly comprised of uk sites first. How can I set my region now that DDG has been added to FireFox?

Thanks

Hi, Forget my last reply, I have just found how to alter my region.

Thanks again
