Yandex partnership?

I would like to know what kind of partner ship there is with yandex? So DDG works as meta search engine and also uses results from Yandex? That's great, because in many cases it seems that Yandex is even better than Yahoo / Bing.

Right -- Yandex is one of many sources.

Hey, 

can we disable the NEW "try this search on" ? (add icon it's too much eww...)


I use !bangs (and i like them) so this is useless for me...

thanks :)

If Yandex is simply a source, why is it so prominently featured on search results?

Because it is one of the most common sources, like Yahoo BOSS, which is also in that box sometimes.

I've noticed that after searching in DDG, Yandex services greet me with advertisement exactly like my search queries in DDG was several minutes~hours~days ago.

To be honest, I do not read terms of DDG fully, but I thought that this is not 'respect my privacy' thing, "partnership" - means selling search queries to Yandex! :(
