DuckDuckGo Region Boosted Search

This page was created primarily for LXLE users that want to get the most out of the DuckDuckGo search engine. However these search plugins can be utilized by anyone, on any system using Firefox, Chrome, Chromium or Internet Explorer and probably other web browsers.

There are endless different ways to use DuckDuckGo when searching. The default for DuckDuckGo is safesearch on without WOT ratings. The default for LXLE is 'Full Search' which means safesearch off without WOT ratings. Below is a list of DuckDuckGo plugins with different settings already enabled. Clicking on them will ask if you would like to add them in your browser.

You can test our default DuckDuckGo search as well as all region settings using our startpage.

DuckDuckGo's default settings return excellent hard to beat results, however they are not localized. Google's servers automatically provide Internet users all over the world with a "localized" version of their search engine. DuckDuckGo can't really provide this because they don't track you, therefore you have to tell DuckDuckGo if you want to boost region results by using the right search parameters.

Using the region setting will boost results within that region (as opposed to exclusively displaying results for that region), including support for region language. Below are preconfigured region boosted DuckDuckGo plugins for your searchbar. Full search settings are enabled by default.
