  • (2023-10-30) Kelly Finnerty: Easy extension to set up search without tracking or search history.
  • (2023-10-14) Pat MySecret: If you have connection problems after installing this connection, check your settings that you are not using a proxy. It seems that the extension allows the advertiser AnonymX which slams you into a limiting VPN. That's too bad.. I like StartPage.. I don't know how closely affiliated this extension is to the site.
  • (2023-10-02) MurderChickenXL: Lacks a custom date search. Also, only 10 results per page is asinine! It's one of the things Google does have, which prevents me from switching to Startpage. Add a custom date search and 100 results and it's 5 stars.
  • (2023-01-10) Макс: Спасибо разработчикам.Жаль нельзя установить на планшет.
  • (2022-09-11) Albert Thumbstone: Best ever !
  • (2022-03-18) Thedpch: what hell is this app so bad all my thing loading my computer still loading
  • (2021-10-06) Mike Müller: Seit Jahren nutze ich Startpage und Startmail. Das Startmail etwas kostet stört mich nicht, denn mit dem Ergebnis bin ich sehr zufrieden. Seit der Nutzung von Startmail habe ich nicht mehr eine Werbemail bzw. sonstige Mail-Belästigungen erhalten. Das ist mir allemal ein paar € im Jahr wert.
  • (2021-07-27) banana: not working.
  • (2021-06-23) M C: Ich benutze startpage.com schon sehr lange und bin überzeugt von der Seite. Schade, dass google nur auf Kommerz aus ist.
  • (2021-05-10) Muito bom.
  • (2021-04-17) Stephen Romain: Startpage has been my preferred choice for a couple of years now. I use on Linux boxes and MacOS.
  • (2021-03-10) big sexy: startpage is usless all i ever get when i do a search with startpage is captcha
  • (2021-03-01) Dak: The extensions works in changing your search engine, but offers no other functionality that I can tell. I would like the ability to use startpage custom URL for the extension, as changing settings is impossible with disabled cookies
  • (2020-12-02) Mr. Oleg A. Andreev: Really useful engine! Awesome!
  • (2020-11-16) Klaus Gehrkens: sehr gut
  • (2020-11-11) Sympathisant: Sehr gut!
  • (2020-10-06) Juan: Es excelente, ayuda que la navegación por la web sea más segura y privada. No recopila tus datos, eso es un punto a favor.
  • (2020-09-24) John Connor: seeks to “gather as much data as possible” which is not how a truely private search engine works, and their parent company used to distribute spyware and malware/adware before changing their name to something else, stay away from this addon, dont use it.
  • (2020-08-04) Keith N: Search results are only 20 results a page. More results with other search providers. MY EXTENSIONS AND ANTIVIRUS DO NOT PRE-WARN ME OF DANGEROUS WEBSITES on Startpage.
  • (2020-08-02) John Cook: I had this extension before changing my browser to Brave. Am not sure what crashed the computer but something caused the HD to clobber the OS. Ended up reformatting the HD, and after wiping the drive and reinstalling the OS, so far, so good. Found out that Chrome had installed a bunch things that I didn't know about, and only found this out because of the crash. Since disabling the bulk of those additions, and wish I had documented them, the bulk of my JUNK email is gone. Was getting 250-300 email JUNK messages daily, and the number is now 3 to 5. Be careful what you do with your Chrome browser. Just sayin. In addition to the crashed HD, and all the JUNK mail from Google, there was continual UNKNOWN restarts for unexplained reasons. This machine has only been restarted once since the latest issue got resolved. Startpage.com stopped working with everything shortly before the major crash that caused the wipe and reinstall. Am thinking it was the browsers fighting with my privacy. So, am glad to see Startpage has returned, and hope this is not the reason for the CRASH. July 2020 has been memorable due to all of this. Am a little disturbed that Google is the one that is going to post this review. Oh well. As a reminder, Chrome is set to SHARE ALL of YOUR Interests with unknown email scams.
  • (2020-07-30) Gustavo HC: is a best
  • (2020-07-10) Дмитрий Сергеевич Дюгаев: Зато не Гугл.
  • (2020-06-29) JONATHAN NOTTEBAERE: merci beaucoup j'aime cette page pour des recherche comme des news sur nos stars .
  • (2020-04-14) Sylvain Malfettes: Les résultats me semblent pertinents mais pourquoi le navigateur Brave bloque 3 trackers sur la page d'accueil si c'est anonyme ? Il semble que quelque chose est contradictoire.
  • (2020-03-12) Furkan Oezbek: Funktioniert hervorragend.
  • (2020-01-19) Eliot Cole: I mean, it doesn't state Opera compatibility, but I was hoping to at least have automatic searches from the search box (not omni), bit sad, violins, please. ;-) It's great for chrome, but I prefer to set things manually, there.
  • (2019-12-11) Krishna Murphy: My only issue with an otherwise wonderful search tool is that, when used with Torch browser, it allows the New Page function to create an override with another search engine in the main view, which gets the focus when the New Page loads, and thus requiring an extra click to get the focus back to the omnibox and thus use SP instead of e.g. Bing.
  • (2019-11-26) Norman Roscher: Funktioniert leider überhaupt nicht. Startpage.com erscheint nicht in der Liste der Suchmaschinen und wird auch nicht als Standardsuchmaschine gesetzt.
  • (2019-11-09) matthew johns: This is quoting your own description page- "Take back your online privacy by using Startpage.com as your default search engine. This privacy extension changes your default search engine to Startpage.com. Startpage offers high quality search results without any trackers or ads that follow you." Does not actually set the default search engine as Startpage.com, default search engine remains 100% unchanged.... AKA this extension is useless as it does not even follow its own description.
  • (2019-10-23) Ben Johnson: As others have noted, this extension's value proposition is limited in that it doesn't offer much (if anything) beyond adding StartPage as a Search Engine manually. The only feature this extension provides beyond the simple convenience of adding StartPage and making it the default search engine is that it sets the search mode to POST, so that the search query does not appear in the URL, which improves privacy against ISP and corporate snooping considerably. The problem, however, is that POST mode is enabled only in the Vivaldi browser, and not in Chrome, Chromium, or Firefox. Furthermore, there appears to be no option to change this behavior. If there is some limitation in the aforementioned browsers that prevents POST mode from being used, this fact should be stated, clearly, as a limitation of the browsers and not the extension!
  • (2019-09-16) Gerard te Meerman: works flawless and adds some privacy
  • (2019-09-09) Kelly Finnerty: Easy to use and appreciate being able to search and browse results with privacy. This is great if you are searching for flights and want to get the best prices. Startpage is also based in Europe and users are protected by GDPR.
  • (2019-08-23) Spencer Mathews: I love Startpage but this extension is of little value, unless you can't be bothered to manually add Startpage as a search engine. Note that when Startpage is added as a search engine in Chrome—either manually or through the extension—it will transmit search terms in the URL query component. This may be slightly less secure than searching directly from the Startpage site, in which case nothing is exposed in the URL. Be aware that this extension also replaced the new tab page with one that is almost indistinguishable but minus the default search bar and any customized favorites (including the ability to customize them).
  • (2019-08-15) Delenn Gadgaard Ribes: Easy to install and easy to use. No issues at all.
  • (2019-07-24) Skid Kadda: Like it!
  • (2019-07-17) Dany Frank: en essaie
  • (2019-07-05) Jeff Milne: I've used Startpage (and IXquick.com) for many years. It's an essential tool and I'll never use any browser until this is installed. I don't understand the low ratings. I've used the service so long I don't even remember how many years that I've used it. During this time - I've never once had an issue with installing, using, or with the results that it provides. Some people don't care about privacy. To each their own I say.
  • (2019-07-02) Kyle Nelson: Finally found a search engine that A) is a quality search engine worth using (e.g. NOT duckduckgo) B) protects my privacy Nice.
  • (2019-05-24) Dieter Till: ich bin sehr zufrieden denn ich Brauchre es für wow und das ist ein Anitivrus sehr gut.
  • (2019-04-06) Detlef: Useless!
  • (2018-10-30) lowpoly brain: It is useless. All I wanted to do is use startpage automatically + autosuggest + ability to save settings across devices. All this extension does is forcing startpage.com as default search engine. Useless, as I could do that without the extension.
  • (2018-06-29) What does this do beside adds an icon to my browser? Doesn't load the startpage, doesn't bring up any window for me to type in. It most certainly does not change my default search engine to SP. SP isn't even in the list of choices.
  • (2018-02-14) Rizon Rock: nice
