Over the past year, as our userbase and community have grown substantially
, we've heard great feedback
from new and long-term users. Now, we'd like to show you how we've incorporated your feedback with a reimagined and redesigned DuckDuckGo:
This next version of DuckDuckGo focuses on smarter answers and a more refined look. We've also added many new features you've been requesting like images, auto-suggest, places and more. Of course, your privacy is protected as well!
It is in beta and there are some known issues. In particular:
--not all settings work yet and the setting page itself is getting an overhaul
--not all instant answers work yet and some have not yet been redesigned
--IE8 is functional though not fully cleaned up yet
In the next month, we hope to make this the default version of DuckDuckGo, but that timing really depends on what we hear from you. There is a 'Give Feedback' button on the bottom right of search result pages that you can use to submit anonymous feedback (with optional query). We also encourage you to post to this forum so that the community can discuss your ideas.
To really give it a go, we suggest setting it as your default, which you can do at the bottom of the new homepage. Here are some sample queries to get you started:
Finally, thank you to the DuckDuckGo community leaders
for all their help getting us get to this point! If you are a developer, you can also help us with the redesign of our open-source instant answers
: we've updated the beta with refinements based on your feedback. More details here
