- Rated 4 out of 5by Damien Alleyne, 2 years 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.
Developer responseposted a year agoThanks for choosing Startpage! Search suggestions are available as part of our our other extension:
We might consider adding support for suggestions here, too, but our team is currently focused on major upgrades to our search experience. Thanks for the suggestion and for carving about privacy!
- Rated 1 out of 5by aths, 2 years agoIt seriously shows ads first in the search results. I always need to scroll past the ads to reach the actual results. It refuses to show the search results & gets broken, when ads-block or similar extensions like no-script are in action. Quite unexpected behavior considering the name "private search engine".
Developer responseposted a year agoThanks for trying Startpage. Ads are how we are able to provide a free private service. It might interest you to know that the team has been hard at work overhauling and improving the search experience. Among those improvements launching this month will be a reduced-ad experience on mobile.
From time to time, we do test the performance of our search results with extensions like the ones you mention and we haven’t found any major issues. In responding to your comment, we tested with several, including NoScript, and were able to pull up results just fine. With NoScript, the menus above the results disappeared, but that is to be expected unless you add us as a trusted domain. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com.
Thanks for caring about privacy!
