- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 16986333, 2 years agoWhile I do support Qwant as an independent and privacy oriented search engine, I did not ask for extra blocking features and cookie consent handling ("VIPrivacy") when I originally installed this extension - only to set Qwant as default search engine. Please do not unexpectedly add completely irrelevant features to an existing extension, keep it simple.
Developer responseposted 2 years agoThank you for your feedback and for supporting Qwant!
Our new browser extension allows you to block trackers and also have Qwant as default search engine. If you prefer to keep only the search engine feature, you can simply ignore the page.
We have transmitted your feedback to our teams and we will keep it in mind for our next versions.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Christian, 2 years agotrès bien, jusqu'à.. toute recherche Qwant (paramétrée par défaut / Firefox PC & idem mobile) me renvoie sur Qwant-Lite avec bien sûr la saisie de à refaire, après affichage du résultat de recherche Qwant 1/10ème de seconde,
c'est passablement énervant
- Rated 3 out of 5by Sanjay Aiyagari, 3 years agoDon't like the takeover of the homepage. However, upon uninstallation they give you the option of using Qwant Basic which is what I want.
It should the other way. Qwant Basic should be called "Qwant", and this one should be called "Qwant Extra" and be completely optional.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Stanley, 4 years agoThis extension changes my homepage without being interested in my opinion.Hello, we're sorry that this addon does not suit you but brace yourself, another addon is coming!
And even better, there it is : https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/qwant-com/
This second addon, also handcrafted by our developers does not change your homepage and only sets Qwant as your default search engine.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 14442458, 4 years agoIt should not change my homepage to Qwant. I use it all the time as a search but I like to keep a few tabs when I launch FirefoxHello, we're sorry that this addon does not suit you but here is a second addon, it does not change your homepage and only sets Qwant as your default search engine. https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/qwant-com/
- Rated 3 out of 5by Halvor, 5 years agoI'm generally happy with this search engine. What I'm not at all happy about is that it replaces my home page without asking specifically if I want it (I DON'T!) and the only way to undo that is by uninstalling the app :-(
I've reported this to Firefox but since they haven't reacted to it I suppose this is acceptable extension behavior. It oughtn't be.Hello, we're sorry that this addon does not suit you but here is a second addon, it does not change your homepage and only sets Qwant as your default search engine. https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/qwant-com/
The fact that you cannot revert your homepage is truly an issue and we've already asked Mozilla if the override of the homepage could be consensual, but as of today, if an extension wants to set the user's homepage, there is no other way than what we did, this is why we do provide another addon.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 12924455, 5 years agoThe search works well, but there is one serious flaw: the Qwant extension prohibits restoring the previous session in Firefox. It is very uncomfortable. It is a pity, but I will have to abandon Qwant. :-(
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 14181833, 5 years agoI'd prefer to have Qwant as primary search engine, but also forcing me to have Qwant as default start page is unwanted! Please add at least an option to disable it. Would make for another star.
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13876667, 5 years agoEnfin un moteur de recherche alternatif.
1) pouvoir modifier l'URL de page d’accueil, car on a qwant.com sans les préférences tant qu'on ne s'est pas connecté à qwant: donc premiere page toujours avec une actu si on ne la veut pas.
2) ne plus avoir des annonces bing ... quitter Google pour du Microsoft? à quoi bon?
- Rated 3 out of 5by Firefox user 13904046, 6 years agoHow about the source code of this engine? I mean how can I trust someone who I do not know and just trust. For example if I use open source app I know that everyone who is expert can browse the code and tell others if there is something wrong. If we can not see the code we do not know if Qwant collects our data- IP etc. or not. It is just about they say they do not do this but how can I know? Regards, Pol.
