a comment on the General Rambling How to re-select no region? 3 years and 4 months ago
I since me and Google broke up and me and DDG are kind of like an item now, I have been exploring all of DDG's capabilities lately. I clicked on region and set it for my country. But when I tried to re-set it back to "no region" in advanced settings and on the results page, neither one takes. Clicking the little X next to the region toggle switch just reloads the results page and still has my country selected.

Probably just a charming DDG quirk I haven't figured out yet but it would be nice to know to make the "no region" selection stick.

At the very least, just letting know the DDG staff this option is acting up.
a comment on the General Rambling Want to share a Custom Links Page I built (with DuckDuckGo badge and search box) 3 years and 4 months ago
I hope that's okay.

It looks awesome with all my favorite links added.

Anyone can check it out here (or just view the screenshot below):

http://www.searchsites.ms11.net/customst...

It's all one page (no external css file) so, if you want one and you know how to edit links in html, just go to the link above and view and copy source. Or right click the page and click "save page as…" and save it to your computer. Edit the page with your own links and then open the page in your browser and save it has your home page. Viola! You have custom link page that loads fast and looks great with the DuckDuckgo badge and search box.

You guys see what I posted above right? It says "Add more search engines..." right in the pic the OP provided.

Regarding the traffic cookie: Perhaps you have some saved setting for DDG and they need to who you are in order to present your saved setting to you?

Thanks, Casper. No questions as of yet, just a very happy DDG user these past few weeks. :)

Also what specifically is untrustworthy and/or unethical about it?

What alternative browser would you recommend? The Thor network/browser seems like overkill to me. People just want to avoid being tracked by advertisers and their ISP.

This is starting to sound like a Googleholics thread.

"My name is Scott and it's been 2 months since my last Google search..." lol.

Yes. If you want to avoid that you can try Epic Browser.

I just wanted to let DuckDuckGo and everyone at the community here know that I have completely conquered my habit of relying on Google search, and DuckDuckGo (among other non-tracking search engines, but primarily DuckDuckGo) was a big part of making that happen.

I don't feel any sense (as I did for a while) that Google is providing me with any better search experience or results. When searching I have no compulsion to check Google anymore to see if I can come up with a better search result there.

I am as comfortable using DDG now as I once was using Google...I could go on about all the things Google did to drive me away - the tracking and the too personalized search results to name but a few - but I'm sure this community is well-versed in all the pitfalls and drawbacks to using Google's various services and products.

So thanks for providing a search engine that I like and just feel more comfortable using.
