  • useless.the only thing it successfully done was crash my browser.tested out the encription point to point into russia to which it failed.ironic(snowden).smart https did what this app couldnt do.(same server test)
  • the private thing, does it legit?
  • It has some great features, but it has one fatal flaw: the forced https is WAY to persistent. I'm a college student, and the personal website of one of my instructors (that doesn't take any kind of personal information) doesn't support https. This extension should have a way to detect that and disable the forced https for that website, after giving the user a clear warning. As it is now, I have to completely disable the extension every time I need to visit his website.
  • I was having the usual problems with web pages jumping constantly while I was trying to read. Duckduckgo cured all of that and more. The annoying adds that pip up or blink on and off are gone!!
    You Rock Duckduckgo!!
  • اكثر من رائع
  • Lo bueno es que esta extensión hace su trabajo sin afectar el rendimiento de la navegación, al contrario la apertura de las paginas es más rápida.
  • its the only way forward people control
  • I love the rating provided for the site and the trackers detected, which also showed the source of trackers origin. I hope more information added to most of the trackers like they have for Google (advertising, analytics). Please keep it up and thank you for the beautiful extension!
  • Unfortunately I just found out that DDG is the reason why I cannot play games anymore on FlightRising. And I blamed them for it! Very embarrassing... Also I need to switch to Google too often when on a search, cus they have better results.
  • Nice.
  • Doesn't work with Waterfox... Please make it work on older versions of Firefox so Waterfox users can use it.
  • Great Extension. No tracking. No ads. Just search results.
  • Spy.
  • Extension doesn't allow user to pause its blocking of site content. Extension needs less control by provider and more options to users.
  • I had to come here to give a 5 Star rating for DuckDuckGo Essentials. You always hear about other privacy add-ons however I hardly ever see this little gem in those lists. I think that DDG Privacy Essentials has a very beautiful yet simple design... and I mean that as a compliment. Everything you need to see with just a click in the toolbar.

    I think this extension is the "Cherry On Top" of my Privacy extensions and wouldn't feel right without it. I currently use uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, Decentraleyes, AND this extension... along with, ya know, a few other smaller extensions like "HTTPS everywhere", "Anonymous Google Search", and of course... "Cookie Autodelete". I like a few fetures of all of those depending on what information I would like to check. Sure, some may say it's overkill BUT that's another aspect that I HIGHLY enjoy... due to the fact that each add-on has options to fine tune it to be VERY light on resources... on my machine anyway (And sure my PC is nice but PCS these days are WAAAY better than mine considering 1 year in PC technology can be a gigantic leap forward in tech.

    Anyway, Great job. 5 Stars ALL DAY K K
  • So far so good.
  • Makes 100% CPU load with FF 60b on Fedora 27/28.
  • super
  • Great add-on.
  • I am disappointed. I expected results that would be relevant to my search, but it doesn't seem to be the case. E.g., my search line is in Ukrainian, the results are in Russian, leading to Russian websites. Are you guys kidding me? How does it make you different from Google? Btw, your "partnership with Yandex" has a bad smell - of FSB.
