Maybe it is a bug (duplicate search results, same URL more than once)

It is not the first time this have happened to me. Eventually it happens for several searches (does not seem related to some search or kinds of).

Strange, never happened to me. Maybe it's a bug of the html version?

I have no clue, but I think this kind of bug should not be possible for only the HTML version. And it happens eventually with my searches. Most things that I search are in Portuguese, my mother language. The potential results should be smaller than English language results, in general; maybe that could be related... but it is just a guess. Well... lets wait and maybe some staff will say anything.

With the exact search of:

+tworld linux chips 1.3.0-5

I could repeat the result now. In fact, scroll a bit more down in the results page I saw a third occurrence of that duplicate one. If I can repeat the test with this search, I guess other users can do it too. Please do so. A direct link for the HTML version of the search is:

https://duckduckgo.com/html/?q=%2Btworld...

Choose any or all or twice on ten times... the more, the best. :)

The same search doesn't duplicate results in the normal DDG version, so yeah it's a html-version bug. :\
