"Anytime" filter in browser searching

Post by ChrisGreaves »

Where have you been all my life?

After years of wading through "answers" that are fifteen years old, I spotted this neat idea over on AskWoody.
My guess is that it has been sitting in FireFox, Chrome, Vivaldi etc for years, and I was unaware of it. Hence the poll.
Next thing I'll be wanting to know is "How do i set the default period to two years?".
Cheers
Chris

Hi Stuart, don't thank me, thank Charlie. He raised the issue and Oscar answered it!
But anyway, I am glad that you found it interesting.
Cheers, Chris

As far as I know, this is a feature of the search engine (DuckDuckGo in your screenshot), not of the browser. Google has a similar feature.

Chrome lets you specify how Google searches. I don't know whether this is possible for other browser/search engine combinations.
Best wishes,
Hans

So, is that a "no" or is it a "yes"? :evilgrin:

If I take the question literally, the answer is "no", since it is not a browser feature.
Best wishes,
Hans

P.S. Here's another trick I learned last year, but I don't know how I learned it.

Code: Select all

https://news.google.com/search?q=western%20australia%20when%3A7d&hl=en-CA&gl=CA&ceid=CA%3Aen
The URL contains a substring "7d" which limits the news reports to the previous seven days.
About once a week I check the news from Western (also South) Australia, but want to see only recent news items.
Cheers
Chris
