- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 13658260, 5 years agoIt would be helpful if this plugin could be configured to not run on certain domains. For example, as a web developer/marketer, I'm often in Google Analytics, but the GA site doesn't work when this plugin is running.
Developer responseposted 5 years agoThanks for the review and comment about not running on specific domains. This feature is already available by clicking the extension's icon in the browser bar, and toggling the "Site Privacy Protection" option. Perhaps it's not clear enough, however, so we'll look into how we can improve this.
- Rated 4 out of 5by PatheticCockroach, 5 years agoI had this installed in a bunch of my old Firefox profiles so I eventually checked it out before removing it.
It's probably an interesting extension for the privacy-illiterates who can't be bothered to install more than one privacy-related extension and couldn't care less about what happens under the hood. But its incredibly minimalist interface makes it very hard to understand what it really does, so I feel much better protected using my usual Ghostery + uBlock + HTTPS Everywhere + Smart Referer + ScripSafe.
Of course, I'm keeping DDG as my default search engine though ^^
@previous review author: Startpage still uses Google under the hood (it's basically an "anonymous" proxy towards Google), so IMHO DDG is way better as it doesn't feed Google data. Startpage can still be interesting when you really really want to use Google but still want it to be slightly more private than the normal way of using it.
- Rated 4 out of 5by Firefox user 13511036, 5 years agoExcellent addon, concept and search engine. I'll probably never stop using it. The only problem I detect with this addon is that it seems to take almost 100MB of RAM on FF 57 on Linux (I compared Firefox's memory footprint with it enabled vs. disabled). For memory-scarce computers such as mine, that's quite a lot. I hope you can improve this please. Congratulations to the DuckDuckGo team!
