DuckDuckGo !bang quick search

Image from store !Bang Quick Search
Description from store This extension adds DuckDuckGo !bang search to chrome. You can use it from the URL bar as long as your default search engine is either google or bing (for now). You can also use it directly on google's and bing's websites. Note: This extension is basically in beta. I would very much appreciate any feedback in regards to any issues, compliments, new features, or suggestions. I am maintaining this on my own and will get any features or fixes as soon as possible. Thank you for trying out this extension! ---------------------------------------------------------------- How to use: 1) Your default chrome search engine must be set to Google or Bing (for now) - The reason being is because chrome only allows me to redirect from certain websites, so I would have to add every site to the permissions in order for it to work. I will gladly add any requests sent in. 2) Enter your !bang followed by your search term (or search term followed by the bang), hit enter and you'll be automatically redirected to that site with your search term! Ex: !a tablet or tablet !a will automatically bring you to amazon with tablet as your search! 3) You can even just enter the !bang and it'll bring you to the website's homepage! ---------------------------------------------------------------- Supported Websites: UPDATE: This extension now supports ANY and ALL !bang searches that are supported by DuckDuckGo!! ---------------------------------------------------------------- Updates: v1.1 - Fix Amazon multiple word search v1.2 - Add Google Scholar and JS optimization v1.3 - Add search request through DuckDuckGo to support all !bang searches v1.4 - Will no longer do a bang search when there is not a letter following ! (Any search with a ! would cause a bang search) v1.5 - Fix an issue where any prediction/ autofilled text was not being caught for a !bang search

  • (2021-05-12) Potato Peddler: one of the most useful extensions. how is it not more known???
  • (2021-02-25) Ian’s Simply Greetings: Perfect! I use Bing as my default search engine and it works - and it works really well!
  • (2020-10-25) Lieven Slenders: Fast and accurate. Redirects all the searches before loading the initial search result, which is GREAT. Tried too many other extensions that would for (eg) `!w bubble` first show a glimpse of the google search results before going directly to the Wiki page with the information
  • (2017-09-04) Cameron Kleiman: This extension is really simply perfect. It redirects all queries starting with an exclamation point to duckduckgo and works great.
