    :mag: Google from the terminal

    For people that are looking for a nice search TUI, may I point you to Googler. It's made by the author of NNN and a couple other fantastic terminal tools. Highly recommend. It's amazing how nice you can make the interface

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

    Okay, I tried a few things out and I think I understand what happened. "\" is "I'm Feeling Lucky" for a search. You can even see this in regular DuckDuckGo, for example if you search "\wikipedia". The "\+" part is more of an coincidence. If you search "\+" with the quotes[0], you can see that the Clark County page is one of the first results. So, it appears that the query "\\+" is asking to search "\+" and open the top result, and that link just happens to be the result.
