Making DuckDuckGo an Internet Explorer 11 search provider

As part of my day job I was provided with a Dell Venue 11 Pro. I tried running Fedora Linux on this but the hardware support for this device is rather limited. So I’ve moved to Windows 8.1 which uses Internet Explorer 11. But this combination does not work well with DuckDuckGo. This post is to provide an easy to use option for adding in DuckDuckGo as a search provider in IE 11.

What is DevOps?

DevOps is one of the most mis-used terms I hear today. It is used in the wrong context so many times that I suspect that by next year it’s definition will cement in a common understanding that is yet to form (and different to how we now perceive it). To prepare for this; I will lay out what I think it should be.

Wikipedia’s definition says it best (simplified by me):

DevOps is a methodology that stresses communication, collaboration and integration between software developers and operational IT professionals.
