- Waardering: 1 van 5door SuperFly, 5 maanden geledenBecome a Captcha-Pro with Startpage. Simply fill in a timed, multiple choice categorical questionnaire web-page detailing your specific VPN, ad-blocker or content blocker, device-identity changer, whether connected to TOR and other useful IDENTITY and TRACKING details - then its Captcha time. Time run out before you could finish the form and captcha? SURPRISE! Every time you use Startpage you fill out the questionable form and solve at least 1 captcha.
Antwoord van ontwikkelaar2 dagen geleden geplaatstUnfortunately, Startpage is subjected to automated abuse and scraping on a daily basis, which can be very costly financially and in terms of system performance; a lot of that traffic originates on VPNs and TOR. Accordingly, we have strong anti-abuse measures in place, which we continually work hard to improve. In some instances, normal users will set off one of our rules and be asked to verify they are not a bot.

But one thing about the addon: On the site of Startpage you can configure your custom style of the page. Because i'm not using cookies, i need to start on the custom url. This addon don't have a option to change it?
- Waardering: 4 van 5door Damien Alleyne, één jaar geledenIt 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.
- Waardering: 1 van 5door aths, één jaar geledenIt 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".
Antwoord van ontwikkelaar2 dagen geleden geplaatstThanks 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!
