The default engine was Google for a while until Mike Perry and I changed
it.  We chose StartPage over DDG because while both being privacy aware,
start page had more relevant search results.  However these days I
personally find that DDG's results are often more relevant than start
page.  They also have a page that does not require cookies or JS at
https://duckduckgo.com/html/
