- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 15179677, 2 months agoVery cool looking page without hoopla with all the things I hate about Google taken out. I can't stand advertising because it has become the focus of everything, everywhere. Being able to search without it is similar to reading a book in a quiet place with no distractions. I would call it "comfortable". My laptop does not lag from everyone attempting to put things into my computer. My processor is calm. So am I. No blitzkrieg of unwanted ads. Finally a search engine that is up to date, quick, simple, and easy on the eyes. I hope it stays this way. Don't sell out to an alphabet agency. I will spread the word about this search engine as long as it considers my privacy. Thanks bunches.

- Rated 5 out of 5by Stehlampe2020, 8 months agoIt's nice to have such a nice little tracker-blocker.
The only thing that confuses me a little bit is that if I press three times Esc it blurs the page for a few seconds and when I press Esc a fourth time it closes the current tab and opens a new one with startpage.com
Developer responseposted 5 months agoThanks for trying our extension! That’s actually a privacy feature called Escape Route, which allows you to quickly hide what’s on your screen.
We’re glad you are enjoying the extension and very much appreciate your feedback.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Trisha, a year agoBest search browser with privacy protection. DuckDuckGo is biased, so I switched to Startpage and like it a lot. The developer of this app deserves donations! Where can I send a donation?
Developer responseposted 5 months agoThanks for choosing Startpage, and welcome! Spreading the word about Startpage and online privacy is the best thing you can do to help us grow. That and not blocking the non-intrusive, privacy-respecting ads on our search results pages ;)
- Rated 5 out of 5by Esthirel, a year agoAbsolutley love this extension. It's so clear what it's doing and how to enable and disable certain options. There is no setback when surfing it's only adding pretection and info about your websites.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 17267262, a year agoBeen a long-time user of Startpage for a long time now, and this extension is awesome! Gives a "privacy score" and keeps reminding me why I use Startpage.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Firefox user 17244388, a year agoThis extension is awesome, been using it for a few days now and have blocked hundreds of cookies and trackers, but the Startpage search is the best part as it protects all of my searches
- Rated 5 out of 5by anonymous, a year agoThis add-on is very useful to have an anonymous web browsing.
Firefox itself is an anonymous browser, but with this add-on the tracking blocking is perfect!
- Rated 5 out of 5by Default, a year agoIt is like a complete anti-tracking suite with a zero-clicks configuration. Ideal if you need to quickly set up a browser (for instance for someone else in your family) and you don't want to go through all the tracking domains blocking through filters, privacy settings etc. You just install this and it already gives you a good privacy standard level.
- Rated 5 out of 5by Nyaa, a year agoThere are people rating this extension low strictly on the basis that they think you should only use uBlock Origin as an extension. Ignore these reviews, this is a great extension that adds to privacy. This extension does more than what uBlock Origin does, uBlock Origin also has features that this extension does not provide. This is not a uBlock Origin clone, it is it's own extension. It is not meant to replace these extensions and the developers actively encourage you to use it alongside it.
This extension sends the do not track and the GPC signal. This is something that uBlock Origin does not do. It also ranks websites privacy giving it a score from 1-5, also a unique feature.
Stop trying to gatekeep privacy please and encourage adoption of new extensions and privacy tools. Locking ourselves to one single tool, even though it helps against browser fingerprinting, is a recipe for disaster. The problem is *not* the tools, it's the lack of good privacy laws. Extensions that increase privacy are a symptom of bad privacy laws, we shouldn't *have* to use any tool in the first place to have privacy.
