Internet & Networking "I think most search results would benefit by some form of instant answer. DuckDuckGo has a lot of goodies, but I think we're only scratching the surface on what can be done there. That's why today we're announcing DuckDuckHack: an open source platform to create instant answer plugins for DuckDuckGo. Think of them like add-ons for Firefox." Pretty cool idea.

What are you talking about?

I use Bing because it works well and I can find what I am looking for (sometimes I search for something about Linux and Java, that's not belongs to MSFT right?), I use IE because it works well for me. I know how to use the built-in track protection list to block some advertisements.

Stop that trolling. It is not funny anymore. Learn to respect, please.
