Start.zorin.com search alternatives?!

Hello all,
Can the web master of start.zorin.com add duckduckgo.com? To have a privacy focused search besides google... you know they are just sofa-king evil. :relieved:

Thanks!

I don't think you can add it by yourself, it's a website. It's a good suggestion. I personally don't use the website you can use extensions to your browser to customize your New Tab Page.

I just use the default :slightly_smiling_face:

It may do a lot of good for the ZorinGroup to add alternatives, not just the Duck, but various other privacy-minded engines.

The Duck has recently come under fire for not being as privacy minded as claimed... It raises serious questions as to whether a Privacy minded Search Engine can even exist.

You can control what search pages open using Firefox settings (or the settings in whatever browser you use, if you don't use Zorin's default Firefox). In Firefox, just set "Home" to open whatever "Custom URLs" you want on startup:

As you can see, my Firefox is set to open three Bing tabs on startup, but there is no reason you can't set your browser to open DuckDuckGo or any other startup pages our prefer.

you can try using metager or swisscow.

I’d rather not have it at all, since JavaScript could be inserted in start.zorin.com to track your searches. I don’t see why they couldn’t do it as an extension or just remove it.

Thanks all. I was mainly interested in the start.zorin.com page. I do have the DDG extension in my browsers. I did find an article about DDG privacy issues. @ Der_Panzer thanks for the suggestions, will check them out. :+1:
