 Replying to [comment:2 f55jwk4f]:
 > I agree that the JS-required versions can provide a better search
 experience. But for those of us who have JS disabled, the versions that
 don't require redirection are faster. (sometimes up to a few seconds
 faster on my network) In my patch, I only added the non-JS versions as an
 alternative. The default is still the JS-required version. So those of us
 who disabled JS manually can change to the non-JS versions of DuckDuckGo.

 Hm. It's pretty confusing to have three or four (if you want to do the
 same for the .onion search engine we ship) slightly different DuckDuckGo
 search engines shipped by default. I think adding the redirect-free one
 manually to your Tor Browser if you want it sounds not unreasonable to me.
 Especially as it stays in your profile when updating.
