We just released some updates to how our front-end JavaScript handles functionality for different browsers and devices. There should be no visible changes. If you experience any issues, please let me know.

I don't know if it just me, but this morning I noticed few changes on the DDG site:
1) the logo and slogan are smaller (or at least it seems that way to me).
2) I recall there were 3 buttons below in which you type your query. Now there's only 2.

I'm using IE 11 (with inprivate + enhanced protection in all 4 categories) on Windows 8.1.

Yes, thank you for posting this! There was a small bug in the new logic for IE, releasing a fix shortly.

The results page suddenly is not translated anymore, every token is in english. Is it a bug due to this change?

Don't think it's related, but sounds like a major issue!

I can't reproduce it here, can you send over the URL for the search you're doing? Also what language are you using?

No prob, it's back to normal now!

I just noticed the DDG homepage using QupZilla at the bottom displays only one rectangular box for "more infos", instead of the 3 circles. Is this an intentional change for minor browsers?
