- Rated 1 out of 5by KDV, 13 days agothis add-on truly prevents tracking of underlying guuuuuuugel search engine. but at the cost of a catastrophic and completely senseless loss of its functionality.
e.g. queries with "quoted" terms underlying guuuuuuuuuugel cracks like nuts, but this one just fails! instead of passing query down and returning result. but why - too simple?
another issue is overbloating user interaction with fucaptchas in places where underlying guuuuuuuugel just works'n's#it and - surprise - simply succeeds!
the worst thing is they know these issues about a year or more, but seems are not going to fix anything...
- Rated 1 out of 5by Publius Maximus, a month agoSeveral years ago I endorsed StartPage, but I dropped my endorsement when System 1 (an ad tech company) acquired both StartPage and the WaterFox browser. Beware. There is no telling what they may do with your data.

Simply fill in a timed, multiple choice categorical questionnaire web-page detailing your specific VPN, ad-blocker or content blocker, device-identity changer, whether connected to TOR and other useful IDENTITY and TRACKING details - then its Captcha time. Time run out before you could finish the form and captcha? SURPRISE! Every time you use Startpage you fill out the questionable form and solve at least 1 captcha.

But one thing about the addon: On the site of Startpage you can configure your custom style of the page. Because i'm not using cookies, i need to start on the custom url. This addon don't have a option to change it?
- Rated 4 out of 5by Damien Alleyne, 8 months agoIt works great. However, it is missing a very important feature: search suggestions. The add-on hasn't been updated in 2 years, so it seems we'll never get this feature. One will have to create this feature on the Mycroft Project.
