It actually does use WebRTC in Chrome. It falls back to Flash in FF right now.

-----


Why? Firefox has had WebRTC support for a while.

Edit: Ok I see below you want Firefox to give you access to the users microphone without asking permission.

They can both be configured in Settings: https://duckduckgo.com/settings

Try selecting the Classic theme in the side menu. It has blue/purple links, darker description text + full urls.

-----


Thanks! That fixes a lot of my concerns. I hope they do some A/B testing cause I don't believe they win many friends with this contrast-free version.

We have implemented a bunch of the feedback from the original discussion. Detailed release notes were posted in the forum: https://duck.co/forum/thread/5747/duckduckgo-beta-refinement... https://duck.co/forum/thread/5851/duckduckgo-beta-refinement...

We also added themes (in the side menu) to address some of the feedback on contrast. Classic theme reverts to the color scheme of the old site. And you can fine tune the individual colors further in Settings.

Thanks, the 'dark' theme seems to have the best contrast, better than both the classic and default themes!

-----


I can't express how much I like having a dark theme. Thanks so much for making a page I can refer to at night that is both clear and doesn't feel like I turned a lamp on two feet from my face!

-----


Thanks! I'd totally miss the themes functionality if not for your comment. Just switched to Dark to match my desktop theme and it looks perfect. I hope more themes will be added in the future.

-----


You can also fine tune the individual colors on the results page in Settings (https://duckduckgo.com/settings)

I'm interested in what people think of this type of course vs. some of the interactive guitar learning software out there?

I was about to post a link to Instinct [1]. I've recommended your site to a couple of people after seeing it on HN when it launched, and both of them have loved it. Congratulations on building a great looking site with a novel approach to learning to play guitar from scratch! [1] http://getinstinct.com

Awesome! Thanks so much for the kind feedback.

-----


thanks, just fixed it.

Looks like jquery mobile + client side MVC-like framework.

Adding node.js as a requirement to do client side development seems like it would be a big deterrent.
