良い拡張機能。 「Startpage — Private Search Engine」でも新しいタブからの検索結果はStartpageになっていたが、edgeのデフォルトの見た目だった。 それがStartpageに変更できる。 気になるところを挙げるとすれば、新しいタブを開くときに一瞬だけ画面が白くなること。 これがなければ完ぺきだった。 Good extension. Even "Startpage - Private Search Engine" had Startpage as the search result from the new tab, but it was the default look of edge. You can change it to Startpage. The only thing that bothers me is that when I open a new tab, the screen turns white for a second. If it wasn't for that, it would be perfect.
