a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Why is DDG losing users? 4 years and 1 month ago
I have told one friend several years ago (I don't have many friends, haha). He said he tried it for about a week but decided to go back to Google because Google's results were better. I'm not sure what he meant. For the entire duration which I've used DDG (almost 5 years) I have never found better results from Google than DDG. I've used "!g" a few times when I suspected their crawler's long-running age to be more promising for finding old, obscure pages I want to find -- but this has never actually been a proven case. When DDG's results are somewhat irrelevant, I usually submit feedback; but neither Google or Bing ever do any better anyways (for the record: really, NEVER, in my experience).
a comment on the General Rambling Why is DDG losing users? 4 years and 1 month ago
I'm curious about whether DDG's Staff understands the problem. DDG's privacy situation hasn't changed. I still suspect it's the auto-suggestion feature -- though this really is not something to be concerned about regarding privacy -- I don't think most people understand anyway. For reasons aside from DDG's simple, straightforward (as in, mindful and genuinely intended; no creatively fickle ideas) and very respectful privacy policy, I use DDG because it is BETTER.

Not only does DDG have a straightforward and sensible privacy policy (finally a software company run by REAL HUMANS), but they take care to deliver this policy as broadly as possible.

DDG's new update has finally put itself beyond Google and Bing, but I still think DDG needs to try creating a native desktop application designed for intellectually-minded people. Traditional "search" tools will never become good enough for intellectual work.

a comment on the General Rambling Mouse-hover to open right panel 4 years and 1 month ago
For document ports which have a width greater than the query box's right edge, you can aggregate the language button into the right panel and enable its visibility/interactability on mouse hover. Do it.

Yeah. I don't mean to be too assertive, but I think this is the best explanation for the greatest traffic drop in DDG history.
