I know there's a duckduckgo browser for mobile, but I haven't seen one for desktop. Just the site (duckduckgo.com) search engine. Am I missing something?

I use it primarily on mobile, but I'm pretty sure the tracking protections are built in to the desktop use search engine through the extension.

Thanks brutha. I already use the browser extension in MS Edge, plus the search engine exclusively. Haven't touched Google or Bing in quite some time.

It's a limitation that allows so many consecutive characters [EDIT: I counted; it's 100 consecutive characters]. A space is injected, breaking the URL.

I still use Google. It helps me find what I am looking for the quickest. Bing always frustrates me whenever I use it, since it doesn't seem to pull up the most relevant results or organize its results in the most convenient format.

How is DuckDuckGo in comparison to Google and Bing?

I had the same frustrations with Bing that you do, and don't even try to use it any more.

The majority of my Duckduckgo usage is on mobile devices, but I haven't had any frustrations with it as far as search results go. The disclaimer is that I don't search that often lol. A piece of equipment here and there, locations for hiking/camping and such.

no problems with duckie here. If you're eager to know exactly, then try it out yourself.

Ditto. No issues with DDG other than the results formatting is pushed to the left side of the screen circa 2002.

I still use Google for most of my searching, but the political filter is annoying.

Edge seems to work best in our CORP environment, despite being Chromium based, seems to integrate better than Chrome. I like Edge, but miss OG Edge's "share" functionality (share to email/<social media>/<instant messenger>/SMSS etc).

I miss Opera (pre Chrome), and have hopes for Vivaldi as seems to be more akin to old(er) school Opera.

Chrome and FF seem to have become useless without a plethora or addons/extensions (have not re-visited extensively in last 6+ months).

Yeah now that Edge is chromium I can use that for watching HDR content on YouTube instead of chrome, which is nice. Firefox doesn't support the needed codec's to do it yet

Do you have a link to an example? Firefox seems to do fine with HDR for me, but maybe I'm not looking at the right videos or looking for the right things in videos.

I've tried Vivaldi mobile and it works well. It does the full page screenshot that Firefox mobile does not (yet Firefox desktop does).

Recently I've tried Brave and a browser based off of Brave called Dissenter. Other than being extreme privacy focused, the cool thing about it is using Gab, it allows you to leave a comment on any URL and other Dissenter users can read it. What's not cool about it is that almost no one uses it so there's very few comments, and of what is there is mostly not worth reading (like most comments on the internet ).

EDIT: Since everything is so privacy focused with these things, I switched my default search to DuckDuckGo. I didn't know until then how stressed out I was that Google was going to take something I searched for and start feeding me news/notifications/Gmail ads for things that I didn't want thrown back in my face.

Oh you can watch them. But HDR isn't selectable unless your in a Chrome based browser.

Example vid


In Firefox: 1080p HD, 1440p HD and 2160p 4K
In Chrome(or Edge): 1080p HDR HD, 1440p HDR HD and 2160p HDR 4K

And it makes a big difference. Because my display will activate and use it's local dimming properly using that HDR data. But of course doesn't activate in Firefox, because it's not in HDR.

It's not just the codecs Firefox is missing for HDR. There's a fairly large Bugzilla that lists all the work required. It's quite significant.
