Do not add a DuckDuckGo link like https://duckduckgo.com/lite/?q=12%3A00+{{TZAbbrev}}&t=ffab&ia=answer (non-JS version of DDG), there are other issues to concern:
 
* It requires a Service as a Software Substitute (SasSS)
 
* Donald Robertson (FSF staff): "it gives me time in PST, which is where I am, but not the time I keep"
 
* While it shows the time conversion, it does not show the date. The `date` command which was present gave the full date and time.
 
* It also wouldn't be accurate over Tor.
