Multiple bangs at the same time? The old sea snake of propositions :)

Hi,

I was wondering if I could use multiple bangs in the same request to leverage the ultimate form of DuckDuckGo's power:

"Hats !i !b !y" I typed in my address bar, with a smug look on my face. Upon pressing enter I raised a single eyebrow.

Turns out my duck searched for "hats !b !y" on Google image. My arms falling to my sides I stood there gasping.

Then I searched if it was ever discussed. Well it already was discussed... Up to 5 years ago!

5 years ago

5 years ago too

I can understand that the feature could be regarded as marginally helpful. But to me it's absolutely useful!

I always search for infos on multiples websites and search engines, so I retype and rebang multiple times. I sometimes even use the !bl bang to get the blinders..!

Regards,

Romain :)
