1. Search PC World on DuckDuckGo: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=pcworld
2. Click any results to the official PC World site.
3. Get "Unable to connect" https://www.pcworld.com/

I've noticed it for months, though I thought maybe it was my HTTPS Everywhere doing it. Guess not.

HTTPS Everywhere indeed has set PCWorld "ON" by default, they need to fix it DDG-side.
I just sent them a notice.

Ah, maybe it's both then. Cause I did try DDG on Internet Explorer and still got it defaulting to HTTPS after a search.

Or maybe PC World could just re-enable their HTTPS and then everyone would win.

Still broken on DDG.
