DuckDuckGo Future Ideas and Design

Okey, Everyone! I use DuckDuckGo. I use it everyday. You probably do too. DuckDuckGo is great, it offers privacy, but I want it to have an even better DuckDuckGo (which it already is really good) The interface could pherhaps be more like the Bigger Search Engines interfaces (all though not the same) Such as the "People Also Searched For" in the web results and images. It could also have an advanced calculator such as the ones found on: Google, Bing, Yahoo, Aol. & Wow, etc. But how could the calculator look? The Equals Button: On Everything else is most of the time the Search Engine Branded Color. Like on Yahoo, Violet. So, the one on DuckDuckGo could be Orange! The Hex Code for that orange is #d44c2a. Also, there could be DuckDuckGo Accounts for people who like having results that are meant to be personalized to them. The accounts could be like no other, as they you would just privately enter in your interests (The accounts could also be your Duck.Co account too, so you could make your account hidden). There could also be a competitor to My Yahoo, perhaps DuckDuckMe? DuckDuckMe could also have a bookmarks bar on the left, a weather, CNN, and Yummly when you start. You could also add more things with a button, it WOULD have the search bar and logo, and it also should have the themes you make that are on cloud with a password, and you could use that for your configuration instead of an account. Also, DuckDuckGo could go as far as to make DuckDuckGo Custom Search, a straight on competitor to Google Custom Search, but where you can configure more, like create a design, unlike Google Custom Search where it just shows the name in Sans Serif. By design, I mean dragging an image you made to a place down somewhere, making a custom search bar, putting any thing from a website, and of course, choosing what sites you want to search.

Also, Tell me what you think about my idea! I would appreciate it. =)

the greatest thing about ddg is that users do not have accounts and the kind of information that you are wanting to have store is not collected

if ddg were to offer accounts and start saving information then government entities could then required ddg to turn over - and I would be out

no thanks - I do not care what others are searching for - I don't want a G interface - the colors are already configurable and the calculator is just fine (and it is open source so you can submit modifications).

www.dontbubble.us says the purpose of DDG. And some articles and videos criticize the filter bubble.
Why do you want some personalized results?

DDG don't collect any privacy. So I think DDG cannot provide any personalized results.

I don't think you guys get what I mean...
Okey, first of all, I don't care if I get personalized results. Second of all, the way it will be is just enter in topics for personalized results, so let's say you are interested in Geography and Vexillolgraphy. You type that in the account. Then, you get results based on that, so, it would really be more of an accuracy tool.

In the first place, DuckDuckGo wouldn't take personal information, as it would just be tuning the results.

I hope you all understand what I mean now.

impossible to understand what you mean when you claim not to care about personalized results but keep pushing for them

your suggestion still requires an account just for searching to which most of us would reject
