    @The Other Steve duckduckgo partnered with yahoo last year & is 'powered by yahoo'.

    when that happened, i switched to startpage, it is better, although i still use ddg to do searches that i want to copy/paste into the forums, startpage does not allow that...

    both searches below are for pcmech, as you can see startpage will not allow the results to be copied, butt ddg does...

    Oh, I didn't know that. Thanks for the update, and the suggestion.

    It looks like you can force StartPage to show a link you can paste. I added it to Firefox bookmarks/quicksearch as

    Code:
    https://www.startpage.com/do/search?query=%s
    with keyword "sp". "sp pcmech" in the location bar gives

    Code:
    https://www.startpage.com/do/search?query=pcmech
    pcmech - Startpage Web Search
