WARNING: It is highly recommend that you set DuckDuckGo as your default search engine. Learn how to do that here:

"DuckDuckGo !bangs but Faster" replaces the requests and redirects to DuckDuckGo's servers needed to handle !bangs by processing them client-side.
This leads to a noticeable improvement in initial page load time, with at least a >30% improvement in paint time on high-speed connections and possibly higher for users on mobile networks with higher latency.

This extension supports all DuckDuckGo !bangs.

Risk impact

DuckDuckGo !bangs but Faster requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

DuckDuckGo !bangs but Faster has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
