I like as my search engine but I don't find it as option on elementary OS 5.0 web browser. The options available there are only Bing, DuckDuckGo, and Google. Not to mention itself currently doesn't support Epiphany with addon. So I add it manually and hey, apparently it's very easy! Here's how to do it:

  • 1) Run the web browser (Epiphany)
  • 2) Open the gear menu button > Preferences
  • 3) Click manage search engine > click + button >
  • 4) Paste this URL there
  • 5) Name it StartPage and close
  • 6) Test searching with it. It should now uses as your default search engine. 

About StartPage

See their official intro here. It's pretty. Learn more about StartPage on, PRISM BreakHackerNoon,,, and BestVPN. It's recommended as a privacy-protecting search engine!
