Interesting.  I haven't got past the "no results" yet.  "?" for me wasn't much help and didn't find a "man" page.  Guess I need to do some research.

BTW, I installed to MX.  I'm looking at the article for Ddgr on "Awesome Open source".  Has a lot of info....awesome! (I hate that word)

Oh, I forgot to mention.. So in the above search, if I just type 10 or whatever result I want, it immediately launches your default browser and goes to the result. Very, very fast.

For browsing from the terminal, I'll stick with Lynx or Links.  To use Ddgr, I'd probably have to build from source.  As is, it doesn't function correctly.

You're not browsing, you are just loading results in a terminal quickly. When you type the number of the results, it opens automatically in the browser as fast as if you simply clicked a link in the browser.

But it does not work.  I went to the site on Awesome whatever and tried using their examples.  Output is always the same.  Then went to http://fossbytes.com and searched "How To Search DuckDuckGo From Terminal Using ‘ddgr’" and tried one of their examples. 

ddgr -w drudgereport.com

output >>> No Results

I'm fine searching the regular way.  Tnx all the same.
