a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Use better technologies than URL redirection for referrer hiding 1 year and 2 months ago
Ah so you already support this tag?
In this case the setting is a bit misleading as it implies that referrer-stripping would not be done without this setting. Maybe you can change this a bit.

Also, to support more browsers, you may consider the CSP thing I explained.

Currently you can enable to hide the referrer (& therefore the search query). However this is ugly as redirections need time and right-clicking on a search result won't give you the correct link and all in all it is a quite outdated behaviour.

And there are better modern an unobtrusive alternatives. To name them:
1. Use Content Security Policy (a thing I'd suggest you anyway) and include `referrer no-referrer;` there, which makes recent browsers to ignore the referrer.
2. Use a Referrer Policy: https://w3c.github.io/webappsec-referrer...
This can be done as a HTML meta tag (with good browser support) or a HTTP header (less browser support).

Personally I'd just suggest you to combine these two methods.

a comment on the General Rambling Language/Country switch/filter does not work 1 year and 5 months ago
Have a look at this gif:

(MP4 version: https://i.imgur.com/XRSHj4V.gif)

What you can see is the following:
1. I search with an English keyword with activated language filter.
2. As the filter is set to "Germany" most results are in German. So far that's okay as it is what I expect.
3. I switch the filter off.

What happens: The results are still the German ones, although the filter is set to "off".

What should happen: Display English/international results.

a comment on the blog post What do security certificates actually do? 2 years and 1 month ago
Well... and if DDG would also support HPKP you could dramatically reduce the risk of bad CAs intercepting your HTTPS connection.

a comment on the General Rambling Please support HTTP Public Key Pinning and more security headers 2 years and 1 month ago
As you already described how certificates in HTTPS work you also mentioned the issue that all CAs can issue bad certs for your domain. However there is a good technology to prevent such attacks: HTTP Public Key Pinning.

More information:

And there are other security headers you may want to add: https://securityheaders.io/?q=https%3A%2...

Very nice idea!
Now you can easily (and mostly quickly!) report things you don't like about a particular search result.
a comment on the blog post Filtering Images by Size 2 years and 2 months ago
Image format/type (photo, graphical, line drawing, transparent, animated/gif) would be nice to see.

Later a license filter (by CC licenses) would be nice and possibly also a color filter.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling The language switch does not work; always displays everything in my native language 2 years and 2 months ago
I think I solved it.

Here is the search with Tor:

And here is the one when selecting the correct language (in the advanced settings), but *not* the region:

So as it seems also the language selected affects the search results...
