Another solution is to use the DuckDuckGo bang code of !g to do a search 
on Google when and only when you need a Google feature like date 
filtering.

DuckDuckGo has over 11,400 ! codes. Including !w to search Wikipedia, !a 
for Amazon, !as for Amazon smile, !yt for YouTube or !ytmx for Mexican 
videos (that's new to me), !cc for Creative Commons, !d for 
TheFreeDictionary.

This ! code option searching is digressing into yak shaving. Enjoy.
