Inspired by this article, I try a couple search queries with DuckDuckGo and it’s love at first sight. I added the Search Add-on to Firefox and even twist Firefox’s about:config a bit to enable DuckDuckGo searching on-the-fly just wih my Adress bar.
Add to Firefox [X]
1. Click this link to open the Firefox add-ons site (in a new tab).
2. Click the Add to Firefox green button on the page that comes up.
3. To add to the address bar, type about:config into the address bar.
4. Then search for keyword.url and change it to https://duckduckgo.com/?q=
Why do I love DuckDuckGo? Because it’s so much fun to use and so incovenient to do a specially targeted query. It’s “bang” support make me feel good — the kind of feeling you get as programmer using some good programmed tool searching for some programming stuff.
