Code:
 had safe search on
Isn't that kind of counter-prodoductive to your goal?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling duckduckgo app on firefox marketplace 4 years and 4 months ago
I have to admit that I don't have the slightest idea what a "firefox phone" might be. I'm old. However, I do know one thing: If it's based on html5, then it's evil.

*sigh* No, they shouldn't. More than enough effort has been spent on doing "nifty" stuff. I'd prefer better search results.

As every reasonable human being is opposed to Html5, I wholeheartedly oppose this request/suggestion.
a comment on the General Rambling random input/suggestion for DDG-developers 4 years and 4 months ago
Hi,

this is just intended as some random, maybe meaningless, input for the developers of DDG.
I issued two search queries:

- "how many" home directory "find . -maxdepth 1 | wc -l"

- home directory "find . -maxdepth 1 | wc -l"

(Backup screenshot: http://imgbox.com/RY18ZbFB)

The former/right result included a link to the latter/left. They weren't presented as search results together, though. I think they should be.

Maybe this helps somehow.
Cheers

Joe
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Permanently save search preferences without using cookies or passwords 4 years and 4 months ago
I'm not sure that I entirely grasp your request, but

- Install “Add to Search Bar” Firefox extension from ...

doesn't sound like anything that DDG can do for you. Fortunately!

Maybe you just want to preserve cookies. I've suggested something of the like previously:

Hope that helps

Thanks for the explanation.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Appearing at the top of search results 4 years and 4 months ago
> I find the search results given by Duckgogo.com shockingly bad.

Shocking, is it? I'm just as at unease with the current development of DDG as the next guy, but I fail to understand why you think that DDG owes you a better rating.

> So the volume or 'richness' of a domain

Putting it into quotation marks doesn't resolve you from explicitly stating your claim. Why do you think you deserve any better? You might be able to resolve it by comparing the search-results, given your knowledge of the field, but how's a search engine supposed to recoginze it ad hoc?

Your achievements/books/importance aren't necessarily recognizable by a search-engine.
Referring/looking-down on pages/websites with lesser significance doesn't help, either.

Unfortunately, no. But I'm in contact with a former member of the Nigerian royal family. They have some investment plans for us.

> "Zero knowledge service, 3 factor authentication (yes 3), yubikey integration"

Am I supposed to understand a single word you just wrote?

I guess I'm just getting old. However: It's just email, dude. It bears no significance regarding the primary purpose of a search engine. Retrieving valid search results, that is. A task at which DDG continues to fail miserably.
