a reply to a comment on the General Rambling How about a search engine without ads? 2 years and 11 months ago
It used to be 1, then 2, now it's a maximum of 3? What next 4, 5 then 6?

DDG really needs to be careful on how many ads they're going to display at maximum. Instead, they focused on the quality of ads not the quantities.

Here's a library of ideas for anyone looking for projects relating to "mainstream privacy". Within each categories are numerous sub-categories (media publishing, email encryption, VPN clients and many more). Yes, DuckDuckGo is mentioned among them.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Found a bug when trying to scrolling down the result page 3 years and 5 days ago
If you press and hold the 'down key' you'll find yourself scrolling in an infinite loop. It goes passed 3-4 results before lopping itself back to the first result - the cycle continues. E.g. #1 -> #2 -> #3 -> #1 -> #2 -> #3 -> #1 ->#2 ->#3

The only way to bypass the infinite loop is to use the scroll bar.

Hope that helps you in replicating the pattern.

I wrote a, hopefully better, clarification to <hidden>.

In answering your question, I'm using the desktop version of IE 11 with Windows 8.1 on a laptop. My IE has 'enhanced protection' in all four categories with a InPrivate permanently on.

I came across the situation where the 'down key' (either by pressing & holding or tapping) does not scroll down through the search page.

I attached the url so you guys can replicate the issue:

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Up key scrolling up is screwed. 3 years and 5 days ago
Yeah that happens to me all the time. If you scroll down the result page (to 'more link' if your advance settings disabled auto-load), pressing and holding the up 'key will' scroll up in an near infinite loop. The only fix I see is tapping the 'up key', that a pretty annoying bug though.

a comment on the General Rambling Found a 'bug' with the instant answer for 'how many people are in space right now" 3 years and 9 days ago
I'll give the instruction on how to replicate this bug:

1) Type in 'how many people are in space right now'.
2) In the instant answer, click on 'Barry Willmore' (or any of the 6 choices).
3) You'll be directed to the search page for Barry Willmore. However if you look immediately at the search box in the header you'll find the following:
"Born and bred in the beautiful state of Tennessee, Barry has always been inquisitive. He was the walk on captain on Tennessee Tech's football team. He has piloted the Space Shuttle (STS 129) and was CAPCOM for the final shuttle mission in 2011. This humble Southerner is most excited about how his work can be used for the betterment of mankind."

Somehow I don't think that is intented to happen.

P.S - I have the header behaviour set to 'on and floating'.
