Duck Duck Search

Post by FlyingHyrax »

A Rainmeter search skin

This skin does what it says on the tin: search via DuckDuckGo.com.
Left click, enter terms, and hit "Enter" to search; middle click to change between Light and Dark versions.
Also includes a version without the red duck logo.

If you're having trouble with the middle-click functionality, open the skin .ini, and (re)set the @Include= to "#CURRENTPATH#vLight.inc" (it's right at the top in the [Rainmeter] section).


If you haven't heard of Duck Duck Go, it's the search engine that doesn't:
- Track your searches
- Filter your results based on your previous searches ("bubbling")
- Target you with ads
...and does:
- Accept !bang syntax to search all of these sites directly
- Have "zero click" info at the top of search pages
- (Optionally) link you to SSL page versions of results

Never heard of DDG until now. Had to try it out and I love it.
I really love your small but simple bar. Now I just got so build the rest of my desktop.

It's a pretty great search engine, even if only just for the !bangs. You can search any other search site straight from DDG!
I'm glad you like the skin. :) It's made without images, so with a little digging into the files, you could make it match with pretty much anything.
