This would offer a ddg start/home page (https://check.torproject.org/) that checks for tor exit node status and possibly shows security updates alerts. check.torproject.org has some GET calls for the update part, but it appears that my browser and the tor plugin do NOT check for updates by default...

As a hack, one can use the ddg onion address, which will not load if one is not connected to the tor network. However, I don't think that most users would understand this...

In terminal, I use torify wget -qO- https://check.torproject.org/ | grep -i congratulations to check if tor is ok.

We can't make a new "start/home page" but a spice plugin could easily be made to use the torproject API and give the status, alerts, etc when certain keywords or phrases are used.
