  We need to add startpage (doesn't record IP for searches) to konqueror web
shortcuts for R14 and 3.5.13-sru code. Checking, I was surprised to see that
StartPage now publishes full support for konqueror and recognizes it in TDE
right off the bat. Just visit and a link is automatically provided to:

  You can now easily add Startpage to your Konqueror browser.
To add Startpage as web shortcut to your konqueror browser follow below


  1. Goto "Settings" in the Konqueror menu of your Browser.

  2. Then Select "configure konqueror..".

  3. Then choose "Enhanced Browsing or Web Shortcuts" from the sidebar on the
left, and you will get a nice long list of shortcut.

  4. Click "New" button.

  5. Enter 'Startpage' in Search Provider "Name:"

* 6. Enter '\{@}' in "Search URI:".

  7. Enter your own shortcuts e.g: 'ix,ixq,startpage' in "URI Shortcuts:".

  8. Click OK.

After following these instructions, you're ready to search: just enter "ix:" and
press Enter!

* Note: the original instruction suggest '' as the search domain, but
I prefer the domain.

  You can also select StartPage as your default search provider after adding it
above. Then your search box in the middle of your home page as well as the
little search window in the top right will use it for search.
