Searching a larger net

I love Duck Duck Go and what it provides, but I also like what Google provides, too. They have a huge pool to search from, and maybe it's just in my head, but I'm often forced to try Google after not being able to find what I'm looking for on DuckDuckGo.

While the bang utilities are sweet, it doesn't really keep the magic of DuckDuckGo when I just get transferred to Google's site.

I want to stay on DuckDuckGo, and I'm sure other people would agree. That little fella (or fellette?) is darned cute.

I'm not sure if it's illegal or anything, if it's impractical to provide, or if an available API is difficult to manage, but I would love it if I could see serch results from Google through DuckDuckGo, under it's adorable little guise.

I think privacy is great, but all too often does it get in the way of convenience.

Thanks for your feedback. The use of a G API is not on the drawing board for DDG. One thing that we often encourage our users to do is to use the [] button. The cumulative information gathered helps the DDG developers to provide higher quality search results for all users.
