Tor Browser for Android is very slow in webpage loading and why there is no search option for extension?

Tor browser is very slow in webpage loading, i know it gives top level anonymity but its annoying, also the app size is huge , i want lightweight app such as duckduckgo. I am currently using duckduckgo browser. Also i am not able to open .onion pages in tor browser, i dont know why? Also there is only few extension is showing to add, there is no search option for extension.

Remember, by design, your traffic is bouncing through volunteers’ servers in various parts of the world, and some bottlenecks and network latency will always be present. You can help improve the speed of the network by running your own relay, or encouraging others to do so. But regardless, that latency should be negligible and you might be encountering the recent performance issues (which is under investigation).

Onion services can only be accessed on the Tor network and the DuckDuckGo Browser isn’t connected to Tor.

The ‘search option’ for extensions is missing from the upstream (Firefox for Android/Fenix) hence not present in Tor Browser for Android as well.
