If one more voice helps, let me wholeheartedly add mine to the call for date filtering. If a bang search to Google or other search engine is comparable to going there directly (which the post by Zacbranni copied below says it is) as far as privacy/tracking is concerned, what's the point? And the post he mentions refers to adding the date sort but not a date filter.

The post I refer to:

!bangs act as redirects so, after you land on that page, you're subject to that site's privacy policy. Showing Google's results on our page would be a violation of their terms of service but we hope to fill that gap by providing a lot more date functionality.

We're working on integrating more date options but, because of the multiple sources we use, it's difficult to do. It's definitely on our list, though!
