A quote from you "'I've been using Duck duck go now for more than 4 years and have never had a problem". How is that possible that you never had problems, four years ago, Duckduckgo never had their mapping service and other features such as images. In the past Duckduckgo was not a completely built search engine, now finally these features have been implemented and now I would not have a problem using it, the search engine is so much better than in the past.

True, we have improved, but there was a lot of things to like about old DDG. For one, we had some more IAs than we do now (we had a redesign in May 2014, and some of the IAs still haven't been adapted for the new syntax and look).

Instant Answer, those boxes at the top that tell you things. So much better than clicking on results. :D

How were those IAs created? Staff top picks? DDG members?
