I think DuckDuckGo hidden service (https://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/) should be the default search engine instead of The former search engine uses Tor unlike the latter.

Please leave feedback.

Yes, the DuckDuckGo hidden service is one of the best example, how useful and good onion services can be used for.

In a "tor browser" a user expects onion routing where possible. Please make use of it where available for most privacy possible. always safe rare exit traffic bandwidth from exit nodes.

I am currently working on this, but the domain (suggestion provider) does not have a secret service itself.

Should the suggestion link be kept the way it is (not protected by Tor, which kind of effectively defeats the whole purpose), or should it be just removed altogether?

Before we make this change we should probably coordinate with DDG to ensure that their onion service would be able to cope with this change.
