I thought I could set them up myself on DDG, but I see now that the keywords are the same for everyone. I guess this means I can't use super short keywords for the sites I frequent most. That's a shame. For example, in Firefox I just prefix my search query with "s" to search stackage.org.

Also, even if they have thousands, I don't think it would be too hard to find a site they don't support. Who knows how long they'd take to add the keyword on request, if they decide to add it.

Pros and cons. No solution is perfect. I guess I'd find DDG's feature more useful if I relied more on my phone for such searches or used random computers I can't setup for myself.
