Re: [tor-talk] Google as default search engine revisited

  I set the default search engine to DuckDuckGo when not using the
browser bundle, and before that Yahoo was my default. DuckDuckGo seems
to be a bit faster than Yahoo, but both work better than Google's almost
constant search failure.

  Having a hidden service as the default search might improve speed even
more, but it's worth testing at least =)
