Extensions and the Windows browser

The browser doesn’t have extension support yet, but we plan to add it in the future. In the meantime, we’ve built the browser to include features that meet the same needs as the most popular extensions: ad-blocking and secure password management.

What early users are saying about DuckDuckGo for Windows

Ad blocking: DuckDuckGo for Windows is equipped with our privacy-protecting alternative to ad blockers: the browser blocks invasive trackers before they load, effectively eliminating ads that rely on that creepy tracking. (Because so many ads work that way, you’ll see way fewer ads – if any at all.) We also remove the whitespace left behind by those ads for a clean, distraction-free look without the need for an outside ad blocker.‌‌‌‌ ‌‌‌‌

What's next

DuckDuckGo for Windows has come a long way in this short time, and it will only keep improving from here. We’re hard at work right now on achieving full parity with the Mac browser, including improvements like faster startup performance, the ability to pin tabs, HTML bookmark import, more options for the Fire Button, and additional privacy features like Fingerprinting Protection, Link Tracking Protection, and Referrer Tracking Protection. As mentioned above, private password and bookmark syncing is also coming soon.

In the meantime, please keep the feedback coming; it helps a lot! There’s an anonymous feedback form in the app’s three-dot menu, right under the Fire Button. DuckDuckGo believes in open sourcing our apps and extensions whenever possible; we ultimately plan to do so for DuckDuckGo for Windows, too.‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌
