Is there a way to use POST requests while searching something in the searchbar. For eg, DDG with post req enabled.

Thank You for your help. That solves my problem.

I was wondering if there was a built-in option to switch between GET and POST ? Otherwise, every search engine would need one more extension to work.

Hi again, I don't see any built-in options in the config. If I hear of anything, I'll get back with you. In the meantime, this is the best that I have to offer.

An afterthought - It would be search engine specific anyway. Double-check the settings in your favorite engines.

For example, in DuckDuckGo, on the Privacy tab, there is a setting:

GET requests Search queries are included in URL (if off, searches will use POST requests)
