Suggestion for the Calculator feature

Overall I love DuckDuckGo but there is one feature I'd like to suggest.  When using DDG as a calculator the answer shows up in zero click info as it should.  Clicking that zero click info (oddly enough) smartly puts the answer in the search bar.  I think what this should also do is put the focus on the search bar after the answer so you can plug it into another equation or apply it to a search instantly.  Also getting the zero click info answer with the keyboard instead of clicking would be nice too.

Thanks for listening!  this search engine is great!

I noticed a strange thing happening when I do .5 ^ 2

It returns .2 instead of .25

Is this a bug?

Fixed -- this was me being too clever.

This should now work--i.e. it now gives focus to the search box as well.
