More info:

Just switched to Startpage, but I miss certain things from DDG, like favicons, code embedding and other integrations from the community, like or hex to rgb calculator directely in the swarch engine...
Also I did not find a way to get a direct link to the pictures without proxy. (I know, it is great for privacy, but for Source references it is not that useful.

@MagicLike Good to hear you made the switch to Startpage!

Just shared your feedback with the team. Thanks for the insight! 👍

@StartpageSearch I like Startpage, but sometimes when I'm using VPN and try to search for something, I get an error page. Any idea why that happens?

@MuuhdistMonk It sounds like you triggered our anti-abuse mechanism. It helps us prevent our service from being excessively queried by bots - which result in server slow-down & extra costs.
