Use the url parameter from the settings, paste it into the address bar and make that page your home page. That's what I do.

Hope that helps.

Dax is the company's logo and the logo is displayed with their product. In my opinion It doesn't really make sense for users to change that.

How much time do you spent on the home page before searching?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling wolfram alpha 3 years and 2 months ago
I don't think wolfram alpha is functioning for the time being. It doesn't seem know what '1+1=' is , 'Arabidopsis thaliana', 'plutonium' or anything for that matter.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling "Security Alert" pop-up when viewing videos on DDG 3 years and 2 months ago
It happened again last night while I was viewing the 'Huron Carol Tenor' on DDG videos. I managed to take a screenshot of it, though it doesn't seem to offer anything of value. If you need certain info from the ‘details’ tab let me know and I'll get it next time.

As for 'is it complaining about DDG's certificate', it doesn’t seem to be despite these sporadic pop-ups.


P.S - this forums really needs an edit button.

I only utilized one browser and that is IE 11 (though I am looking for a second one). That pop-up warning doesn't appear all the time when viewing videos on DDG, just sporadically on few occasions.

It the first time I ever came across it since the new DDG came out.

I'm using IE 11 on Windows 8.1 through private browsing. I think the screenshot is self-explanatory but if it not let me know and I'll provide more information to the best of my ability.

a comment on the General Rambling Statcounter detects the global rise of DDG 3 years and 2 months ago
http://gs.statcounter.com/
Conditions in the statistic used to find the information:
-search engine (all platforms excluding consoles)
-period of 6 weeks
-specific regions (as listed below)


Within the last 6 weeks, the website has detected the rise of DDG in the following countries listed below. You can always tweak the period to see how much DDG has risen over time. For example, DDG was not on the Liechtenstein’s radar 12 months ago. Yet 6 months ago it had captured 0.29% of the country’s share. It has now reached 0.36%, making it the fourth largest search engine in Liechtenstein after Google, Bing and Yahoo.

Andorra: 0.1% uses DDG (Ask Jeeves at 0.63%
Australia: 0.07% uses DDG (Ask Jeeves at 0.38%)
Canada: 0.12% uses DDG (Ask Jeeves at 0.29%)
Cayman Island: 0.21% uses DDG (Ask Jeeves at 0.70%)
Liechtenstein: 0.36% uses DDG (Ask Jeeves at 0.17%)
Sweden: 0.07% uses DDG (Ask Jeeves at 0.33%)
a comment on the General Rambling Bug on Instant Answer 3 years and 3 months ago
When searching through videos, images, news and other similar through instant answer – there is an annoying bug.

After selecting ‘click to expand’ for any of the above, I can no longer use the ↑ and ↓ keys without completely flying off the instant answer page to the page showing the search page.

The similar situation can be said for using the ← and → keys. Pressing any of that (before clicking on an image or video) will throw you off what you’re trying to scroll through - to the next category of instant answer (e.g. from ‘image’ to ‘video’)

It adds to the frustrating experience with instant answer on DDG. I really hope this gets fixed.


P.S: Not sure if this qualify as a 'bug', I'm just using my best guess.
