Start page also allows you to generate a url that has certain settings,
for example this one (
https://startpage.com/do/mypage.pl?prf=c2a9ee9b20d61e980b6f6cce7026bc91
)has safe search turned off and no caching for video and image search
results turned on.  It could be useful to put something like this in Tor
Browser to avoid search filtering.
