DuckDuckGo is dedicated to search and so we have no plans to create an operating system (or browser browser or email service). Our company and community is focused on creating and maintaining Instant Answers to power a better search experience. If you'd like to get involved there, we'd love your help.

Here's good information on privacy based Linux distros: https://vpncritic.com/best-secure-and-an...

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Can't Delete/Remove/Eradicate DDG 1 year and 11 months ago
Hello and thanks for your questions. First, let me assure you that DDG does not install itself without user authorization, that goes completely against our way of doing business. I suggest that you read through this forum thread for information about removing DDG from your browser: https://duck.co/forum/thread/1710/how-ca...

One thing that interests me is your comment: Every time I try to use google, DDF (sic) hijacks the webpage.. Does this mean that if you try to go to google.com you are redirected to duckduckgo.com? If that is the case, it's possible that someone has altered you HOSTS file.

Thanks!
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling ip address not hidden 1 year and 11 months ago
Hello and thanks for your question. It is true that DDG does not track you and does not store or share any user identifiable information but once you have left the DDG web site (for example, click on a link the the search results page) you are left to the policies of the web site that you are connected to.

Unless you are using a proxy or other spoofing method, all web sites are able to read your IP address, it's how they know where to send their data to. For an example of this try this DDG search: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=what+is+my+IP+...

For more information regarding DDG and privacy, please read these 2 web pages:

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling DDG Redirect — Which setting is which? 1 year and 11 months ago
It's only a local privacy issue (displays in browser URL field) and most users want the search URL displayed so it can be copies\pasted. If your preference is to have it disabled you can do so in settings use one of the save methods or use the DDG bookmarklet URL:
https://duckduckgo.com/?kg=p

Per the description on the page:
On = Search queries are included in URL
Off = Searches will use POST requests

I suggest that you read this from help: https://duck.co/help/results/rduckduckgo...

This would require DDG to collect user-identifiable information, which they do not do.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling DuckDuckGo extremely slow on Safari 1 year and 11 months ago
Not knowinf anything about your operatiing environment (OS, versions, etc) I tested using Safari (current versions) with Windows 10 and MacOS and it performed just fine. I suggest trying to flush Safari`s cache and disabling all extensions to help determine the source of the issue
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling MISSING ARROW AND WHITE DDG ICON ON HOMEPAGE 1 year and 11 months ago
I just tested using Firefox 47.0.1 on Windows 10.

I selected several different themes and I am able to see and use the FF Top Of Page arrow with each theme.

Regarding the DDG icon, I tried a couple of different background colors and the icon appears just fine (for example: #1e1c1c).

If you can provide more detail it will help us to better understand the issues that you are encountering.

Thank

The following post was submitted by a new user, but included the user's personal email address, which is never a good idea. Here is the content of the original post:

I enjoy changing the theme and general appearance of DDG. But the two issues are stated below.

1. But when I change the appearance I no longer have the FIREFOX arrow that puts me to the top of the page without having to scroll. I found that very useful & a great idea.

2. When I change the background color, the DDG icon on the homepage becomes mostly white with
the text beneath it also white. What can I change to make DDG icon on the homepage show up more clear -more colorful - more contrasted? I don't see a place to change the appearance of the DDG homepage icon.
