@Guest had never heard about ArioOS distribution, seems interesting that as a localized distribution privacy is taken serious, maybe you can mention that in the features section.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling I'm begining to think duckduckgo is the best thing since sliced bread 5 years and 8 months ago
Yes my main search engine also has been changed to DDG for quite some time, being addicted to bangs, !ducky (\) and key bindings ('h' being the most interesting) I can hardly tolerate any other search engine for long :)
Only every once in a while I may stumble upon a very rare string I want to search (sometimes weird error messages or when I really have no clue but a meaningless string at hand) which I have to resort to !g because the sheer size of their index of non-meaningful strings.

<jk>It is the same guy that insists it is GNU/Linux instead of Linux, if you are using any GNU in DuckDuckGo, GNU/DuckDuckGo is not out of scope then :) </jk>
Hope more famous people start using this amazing search engine, realize its power, and perhaps mention it on media to bring more attention.

I am using the terminal theme for 2 days (with "h" key active) and I am loving it!

I think that is too much effort; if it was not for ChromeOS Google would not have started Chrome. Maybe it distros should be encouraged to set the default search engine to DDG.

Just wow! but why "h" key does not work with this theme?
a comment on the General Rambling "put search terms here" is a magic string used as placeholder for empty box 5 years and 9 months ago
If you read the title you already know the answer.
It seems the mentioned phrase is used as a place holder, giving it a special properties
I usually find these magic number/strings to accompany a FIXME in code because they reveal imperfections (I know it is not a big deal but still could not resist but to mention it).
Ideally the edit box should come with an isEmpty() function, and if not should be sub-classed to add one.

How to produce:
1- Open DDG
2- Search for "put search terms here"

Another artifact: if searching like this through the  FF search bar for example, when you click on the search bar the term vanishes :)

Overall I really like your current dark theme. Similar to the Background I suggest also adding "Links Background", "Links Border" (a thin border around the rectangle of links), and also to add the ability to fade the region borders instead of a crisp line.
Also taken from how in new mobile phones there is a mode that icons start to wobble and one can move them, I suggest a special mode that in DDG different elements could be colored (maybe with a pallet near them), or moved around, this would be easier for people to select colors for different elements, instead of a possible growing list of names of elements.
sometimes I wish I could grab the 0-click and move it (and dock it) to some other place. I should confess I do not know how hard it is to do something like that.

In any case, good luck
