Is hate it to type in the browser the long term

On the one hand its very long on the other hand with 10-fingers-typing its complicated to type and "doesnt feel good in the fingers".

You should really think about a shorter URL and one that can easier be typed.

Your search engine is great and you would get definitly more clicks.

Needs a name attractive to corporate's language.

When I ramble to friends about IT stuff, it's a mouthfull to blend in "duck duck in conversation, to convert a mind to think beyond a 1 word search engine name.
Personally I don't mind, it's the price I am prepared to pay, to use 2 extra words and have a search engine such as DDG deliver the results I look for, so far every time 100%, I have found what I'm looking for.

Further more, if anyone does think of a relatable name to DDG, don't be silly enough to post it on a public forum, cos these others have the financial clout to "buy" a URL name and simply shelve it so it can't be used.
Send that type of idea or ideas, privately to the Admin. of DDG for consideration.
Oh yes, and hopefully do it on Linux OS, if you have Win 10 or Cortana switched on, it may defeat the purpose, !

Maybe the url should be even more complicated, so we would bookmark it faster ...and also just for fun.
