Congratulations on the big growth.

I'm annoyed that I can't set DDG has the default search engine in Chrome (Android). I hold a bookmark though so 'duc' autocompletes to duckduckgo. Not too inconvenient.

Hi yclept, we understand the frustration! We're always exploring our options here. There are other Android browsers that do/can include us!

1) Install Chrome Canary. 2) Type duckduckgo.com in the address bar. 3) Do a search from the search box. 4) Repeat step 2 and 3 for a decent number of times (say 5 to 8 times). 5) Go to settings->Search engine. Here you should see duckduckgo.com in the recently visited section along with the usual options.

There's a patch floating around the interwebs that lets you do just that. But that's a real pain.
