Think i might start studying DuckDuckGo's ways of searching as it is a cross-browser option.

Ghacks just tickled my curiosity:

2.9.2218.49 here.

The odd thing is.
Tried on Brave browser with both Google and Presearch and neither worked.
Then went over to M$ Edge and both went well.  :(
Btw, both Brave and M$ Edge already have a functioning version of the "Google" script.
I'm just stymied about this incoherence.

@4wd - thanks again, you have been more than patient!!

First try was with Vivaldi (still doesn't work after third verification).

Just tested with Firefox and your script works just fine there.  :)

Wonder why initial Google script works with Vivaldi but not yours?  :huh:

So basically, if Presearch is selected, then this is the part i would use
%22http://engine.presearch.org/search?q=%22+q.replace(/\s+/g,%22+%22)
to replace Google's?

Did use 4wd's last script and it isn't responding.

(btw - thanks for the sweat out brushing up on the coding language 4wd!
Illustration is much appreciated too and hope other newbies will find it helpful).

@4wd - would it be too much to illustrate Presearch as example?  :-[

Re-read your post at least 4 times...

Wish i was a coder!

The little html i learned years ago, is long gone.

Did try to replace Google.com with Qwant.com and it doesn't work.

Thought about after and then the day got going...

javascript:q=%22%22+(window.getSelection?window.getSelection():document.getSelection?document.getSelection():document.selection.createRange().text);if(!q)q=prompt(%22Search%20terms%20[leave%20selection%20and%20box%20blank%20to%20list%20all%20pages]%20...%22).replace(/\s\+/g,%22%252B%22);if(q!=null)location=%22http://www.google.com/search?q=%22+q.replace(/\s+/g,%22+%22)+%22+site:%22+location.hostname;void(0);

Have a script in my bookmarks to search a site, but it always uses Google.

Is there a way to have one that can use another search engine?

Startpage, DuckDuckGo, Presearch, Qwant are some of my favorite alternatives.

Never noticed until uBlock Origin disabled.

Not nice for sure!  :-[

General Software Discussion / Re: What Android Apps Do You Use?
« on: January 31, 2021, 08:20 AM »

Here's a list of most of the interesting Android apps I'm using. I didn't include some I use a lot because they are either too niche or local (country)-specific

These are the ones that I think will be of most interest to other forum members:


  • Bromite: in their own words "Bromite is Chromium plus ad blocking and privacy enhancements". Not my default browser, though

Bromite is no more?

Update: no more on Google Play but still downloadable from Bromites' website.

12
Come to think of it... think i might just make a short video tutorial.

Probably is one on the web too!

13
From a users point of view...

Is there an installable script to make Youtube automatically translate and show in English subtitles?

Independent of any browser?

Would be handy for elderly who are often non-geeks and deaf.

14
Thought the good folks here would appreciate knowing:

@Deozaan - thanks!

Appreciate your footwork!  :Thmbsup:

- - - - -

Testing Brave nightly (on Windows and MX KDE beta1) and it is fairly solid but not yet into that "conversation" piece.
Not many people i know use Brave. At most, they go into Firefox (instead of default Edge).

16
Then they'll do as in China and oblige all info to be handed over to the FED, NSA, DHS...  :huh:

17
Barca +1 email client (already mentioned) for sure!!  :-*

Digsby IM client (could check most popular ones).

"Typing Insights"? - O&O has you covered:

Then again, if you keep things in your Google account, your Outlook account or surf the web... they will surely find things out about you (even if you don't have a Facebook account).

How one guy made his (heart wrenching) way to Python:

I'm not a coder, but similar stories will surely help some to appreciate and maybe eventually embrace this.
The above story i originally found at:

Kind of miss the ol' StumbleUpon site at times...  :(

Anyway, i stumbledupon this site today and couldn't help to laugh at things posted on their "about" page:

What is The Babylon Bee?
The Babylon Bee is the world’s best satire site, totally inerrant in all its truth claims. We write satire about Christian stuff, political stuff, and everyday life.

The Babylon Bee was created ex nihilo on the eighth day of the creation week, exactly 6,000 years ago. We have been the premier news source through every major world event, from the Tower of Babel and the Exodus to the Reformation and the War of 1812. We focus on just the facts, leaving spin and bias to other news sites like CNN and Fox News.

If you would like to complain about something on our site, take it up with God.

Unlike other satire sites, everything we post is 100% verified by Snopes.com.

Funny that you would mention that IainB!

Had (once upon a time) Tim's role in elementary school and was just as timid as he.  :o

Merry Christmas to you all and may God bless you too!  :-*  :Thmbsup:

Have been using this security software at the free level for a while now and find it quite helpful.
Hope it can be of help to members here.

The details about a year's free subscription contest to the pro version:

Thanks Wraith808 - would have never known about that.  :up:

Had posted on their forum but it's lost in the wind.

Have un-installed Brave all-together (on Android too).

Bookmark+Password import was ineffective.

Even Vivaldi (who aren't as well funded) do a better job at both!   :-*
