Every time I perform a search in Duck Duck Go I get tons of spamming results from the terrible, I would say bloatware, website www.msn.com, that for some reasons has a better ranking in Duck Duck Go than the original news sources. And this thing was driving me crazy, also because on the terrible msn.com there isn’t a quick link to jump to the original website. It’s a total crap.
So I had to find a solution to fix this, one could be to use a stylesheet that eliminates msn.com but I didn’t want to install a browser extension only to exterminate msn.com, so I found another solution.
I made two bookmarklets and a shortcut to search in Duck Duck Go with the parameter
-site:www.msn.com that eliminates all the crap.
Here are the two bookmarklets, the first uses your selected text as search input:
And the second one will ask you for a query to search:
But since it’s very useful to have this bookmarklet inside the share sheet of iOS/ipadOS and macOS, I made also a simple shortcut that can be launched via iOS share sheet or right click in macOS:
…and enjoy a msn.com free search =)
