The new DDG (next.duckduckgo.com) isn't as filtered from sex and other inappropriate content compared to the old DDG. Example screenshot below... shows "sex video" without any filter. The new DDG doesn't have any options either to censor inappropriate content. It would be much better if this was fixed.

We actually do have a safe search setting (turned on by default). You'd be shocked to see what the results look like if you go into your settings and turn it off :)

As far as old vs. new site. The organic links should be the same, let me know if you are seeing differences.

The Videos tab at the top is a little different in that it's being populated pretty much straight from Youtube right now. On the new DDG you'll see similar results as you would here: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_qu... Adding more filtering to the top area is a good idea and something we can hopefully look into in the future.
