Default Search Engine?
« on: September 10, 2013, 06:29:41 am »
I would like to see Duck Duck Go as the default engine if that is possible.  They don't track you for advertising purposes the way Google does.  It would give the user a little more privacy.

Would kinda depend on what browser you choose so easy to add as default like wallpaper. does vector set browser defaults, if so they may want to put the vector links and docs as defaults as well. ;)

overthere - I realize that no distro can be all things to all people.  It's really no big deal.  Just a thought............ :)

Not a bad thought, I agree, it would be nice to see duckduckgo at least in the list, google usually is first but you can choose others like bing or yahoo  when you click the little down arrow next to the g, but duckduck is still an add.

I would support this :)
