a reply to a comment on the General Rambling So, I wrote a Userstyle for DDG - Looking for feedback 6 years and 8 months ago
Thanks that is much better, In fact I will switch to your user style :)
I also do not find the "search suggestion" very useful.
I like your light option very thanks for that :)
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling DDG Dark Theme II 6 years and 8 months ago
This is cool, I really like the params setting that does not need any style :)
Here is my previous user style borrowed from "Duck Duck Go Dark Compact " the cool thing about the theme is that it has a thin rectangle around the search results which makes it more clear. I switched to this one now and it also is very interesting, and separates the results well.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Why the duck is so ugly? 6 years and 8 months ago
If you use Firefox I suggest Stylish add-on, there are some themes for DDG and most of them turn off the duck by default.
The one I like the most so far is "Duck Duck Go Dark Compact"

As much as I like DDG and promote its use, I do not like the duck specially in a professional environment as my homepage, maybe if it was faded in the background with dark colors it was more appealing to me :)

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling New visual design is live! 6 years and 8 months ago
I use Firefox. This happens on Windows:
If I use mouse I usually use the middle-click to open results in new page.
In the new design if I middle-click exactly on the URL section of the search result it is opened in new tab as expected, but if I middle click somewhere in the rectangular box (not on the URL section but on the text snippet) a "site:website" is added to the end of my search term. In other words, DDG searches the website under cursor for the original search term, instead of new tab (Firefox default).
Is this an intended behaviour?
If yes, that would be great to change it something else because it steals the key-binding default of Firefox.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Is there a way to keep my window settings, without signing in? 6 years and 8 months ago
You can use the URL params, this is something Google does not give you. You can add your params to then bookmark.

I like the overall black theme but using the cursor (new DDG design) there is not enough contrast to see the highlighted search result.
BTW, "search suggestions" is vanished.
Another thing I noticed and happened only once (am not sure it is because of the style) was that down-arrow did not go to the newer results but circled to the first one when reached end of screen.

I really like the new design and nice integration with arrow keys (and h key), this is what I would call a good change, not a change for the sake of change, thanks
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Change site name to Quack 6 years and 8 months ago
One advantage of a one-word name is that you can use it as a verb, M$ was clever to choose a simple word like Bing. They wanted to get the momentum, and coin their search engine name as a new verb. Both "Google it" and "Bing it" work but it is hard to say "Duck Duck Go it"

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Testing new visual design III 6 years and 8 months ago
I like the new look better it makes it easier to spot result of interest.
I am using "Duck Duck Go Dark Compact" style BTW
I like to receive less photons emitted to my eyes, and sorry but yes I am not in particular a big fan of the duck head at my work as my homepage :)
