Nope, OTR's main goal is to give you encryption/privacy regardless of what the server is doing. You could use OTR with gmail's chat, and it would be just as useful. It does that by encrypting messages in your client, then sending them to the server as if they were normal (plain-text) messages. The client at the other end decrypts them with a key you've shared previously.
a reply to a comment on the Instant Answer Idea List of musical notes in a certain key 4 years and 2 months ago
To clarify, this is not using a local collection of chords/scales. It uses the definitions (intervals) of each type of scale and does the math itself.

Yep, sounds right.

I actually have a goodie which does this already:

Code:
Query: C minor chord
  You entered: C minor chord

DDG::ZeroClickInfo  {
    Parents       WWW::DuckDuckGo::ZeroClickInfo
    public methods (1) : new
    private methods (0)
    internals: {
        answer        "C Minor scale: C, D, D# (Eb), F, G, G# (Ab), A# (Bb), C ~ Relative Major: Eb Major ~ C minor Chord: C, D#, G",
        answer_type   "chords",
        html          "C Minor scale: C, D, D# (Eb), F, G, G# (Ab), A# (Bb), C ~ Relative Major: Eb Major ~ C minor Chord: C, D#, G<br/><img alt='keyboard' src='data:image/gif;base64,...image...' style='display:inline;'/><script type='text/javascript'>function loadJS(path, callback){var element=nrj(path,false);YAHOO.util.Event.addListener(element,"load",callback);return element}
loadJS("/share/goodie/chords/SoundManager2/script/soundmanager2-nodebug-jsmin.js", function() {
    soundManager.setup({
        url: '/share/goodie/chords/SoundManager2/swf/',
        preferFlash: false,
        onready: function() { 
            soundManager.createSound('C', '/share/goodie/chords/C4.mp3');
soundManager.createSound('D#', '/share/goodie/chords/D#4.mp3');
soundManager.createSound('G', '/share/goodie/chords/G4.mp3');
        }
})});
function play_chord(notes) { notes.forEach(function(note){soundManager.play(note)}) /* TODO: Add delay between notes */ }
</script>",
        is_cached     1,
        is_unsafe     0
    }
}


This is not live yet, because I'm still waiting on an internal change to allow serving files (mp3 files for each note) from goodies. The code is here, though, if you want to take a look: https://github.com/duckduckgo/zeroclicki...

It does not support TLS (the successor to SSL), only plain old SSL. OTR is a purely client-side feature, so it is supported everywhere.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling keep DDG but remove search box 4 years and 2 months ago
DDG does not affect your web browser's search box at all, that's completely up to the browser. What browser do you use? (Firefox, Safari, etc)

In any case, it probably shouldn't be resetting itself like that. Your browser's support community is a better place to get help for that though--we might not know such things. :-)
a comment on the Instant Answer Idea New !bang for a calculator. !calc or !calculator 4 years and 2 months ago
Seems like the OP wants an in-page calculator (buttons, etc) as in https://duck.co/ideas/idea/441/search-ca...

The XMPP server is overdue for some updates, but attention is focused elsewhere at the moment. We'll get to that soon.
