Add StartPage as default search engine to the list

  • The list of default search engines only has the most well known ones, but I'd like to see www.startpage.com as well there. I don't know how to add it manually since it requires some weird key.

  • Right-click in the field on startpage.com, click "create search engine". You can assign it a keyword too like sp if you want so that when you want to search view the address field, you just type sp term.

    You can't make it the default where you type in the address field and just press enter to search like you can with the default-specified search engines, but besides that, it'll work for you. The default ones have keywords too and if you always use the keywords with those even when you don't have to, *having* to use a keyword for a search isn't a big deal.

    Guess it'd be nice to be able to choose a custom search engine as the default. That would solve your issue.
