Since the code is executed on the users computer, I don't see why this should be a privacy abuse.
Are visited pages ranked higher than others? This would indeed mean that private data is sent to the remote server.
I did not notice an altered relevance after having visited a page for the first time.

Of course one would have to skim through the code to make ultimately sure, that it does not send private data back to its server.

Currently DuckDuckGo returns private information in the results.
When user performs a search, results include a small mark when are
aleady visited in the past. This means DDG _javascript_ accesses to web
browser history.
I've tried this with M.Firefox.

Will need Icecat be fighting against DDG privacy abuses?
