Great private search engine, same as google but with the privacy. I don't know if it better the Duck Duck Go, but the 4 stars goes towards the kind of results I get. I like Bing it's probable the same stars.
I hate this home page, whether from start page, firefox or whereever! I hate the huge glaring white box that covers all but approx 1" of the screen. I tried not using firefox for a while, thinking it might not bother me after a while. Why I thought that I don't know. It bothers mo more than ever. The picture I chose for the homescreen, which would provide a softer image to look at, is barely 1" wide and is mostly obscured by the tab , address bar, leaving only about 2" of the picture visible albeit through a transparent bar. Minimalism, whatever its raison d'etre, is annoying in the extreme, cheap, and lazy. If anyone knows how to use firefox without this huge, glaring white box, or perhaps how to make the picture/theme cover the whole page, I would like to know.
