Don't confuse portable with mobile. With portable, the thought is to allow the program to be fully installed and maintained on a moveable device (re: flash drive) so it can be moved and used from desktop to desktop.

I was hoping to attend yesterday's discussion, ended up pushing a snow blower and plowing snow... ugh.

So, based on @yegg13 's comments above, the DDG Browser project is, at least of the moment, on hold, is that correct?

In it's place is a project for "bundling" the add-ons found at FixTracking.com, which I think is a great idea.

It may help to know that Firefox has Collections which allow a user to create and (optionally) share groups of add-on. I think that these collections would be a great approach for the add-ons recommended at FixTracking.com without reinventing the wheel.
Thanks!

I like the idea of this project and look forward to see it develop.

One idea that I had is to have a feature that allows the user to see all tracking, cookies, scripts etc. in a separate window. Conceptually, it would have a UI like FF's or Iron's (Chrome) Inspect Element, where the user could click the screen with the alternate-mouse button and display the list. Possibly allowing the user to select items not to be blocked would be nice as well.

Thanks!

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling How can I delete DuckDuckGo from Chrome? 5 years and 8 months ago
You said, "when i first start Chrome, DDG comes up". Do this:

Settings
   On startup
      Open a specific page or set of pages. 
       Highlight the DuckDuckGo startup page and click the x next to it

It's not garbled at all, it's a link. Click on it, the instructions then follow the instructions.

Is the information from this link still current and accurate?: https://duckduckgo.com/duckduckbot

I ask because I am unable to get the DDBot to crawl my web site:


I believe I have the bot information entered correctly:


Any help getting the DDBot to crawl my site is appreciated.

Regarding #1: Android=Google, which means that they will always push uses to use their services and also means that Android devices are constantly feeding the Google data monster.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling phpBB3 Site Search 6 years and 1 day ago
Well, unfortunately, none of these work, but I suspect it is due to the web content being stored in MySQL database. For now, I think I'll need to use phpBB3's built-in search.

Thanks

...later
Or, it could be that the DDG crawler has never visited my site. Sigh.

Nope, just short gone, but back now. Thanks all, for the input. I'll pour through this and give it a try. I really appreciate the time and effort that you have expended on this!
