    Google is annoying more and more with personalization, spellcheck, localization (and tracking!) that I didn't ask for. Has anyone else switched to DuckDuckGo? Explanation here...

    Works fine on the touchpad. Not so much on the phone. It loads a mobile site which does not render properly. Is there a way to force the full site from the phone? It seems the full site would auto-scale ok, the way it is written.

    I'm on a Pre3, and although the text is bigger than I would like, the render is clean. I've tried tweaking the cloud saved settings, but it doesn't change much.

    There's a "lite" version which might be perhaps more what you are searching (https://duckduckgo.com/lite/) but I don't know how to modify the existing JustType settings to use this instead of the normal mobile page. Anyone know?

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm now off Google as my search engine.

    I hate it with a passion. I've been using Linux Mint for a few years and they switched a year or so ago. I now have to go to extra effort to search, oh the humanity!!!!!

    How do I add DuckDuckGo to the list of TouchPad browser-search engines? I'm using it as my default search engine on Just Type, but if I have a look at the settings of my Touchpad I can only see Google + Wikipedia.
