Under the new, "improved" DDG, we get autocomplete ON and the fabulous drop down menu no where to be seen, and fewer listings.
Please consider restoring these features (drop down menu, more listings on the screen) and making autocomplete/autosuggest OFF as a default if we want.
I miss the ability to sort by date by using the drop-down menu. Yes, I know I can type "sort:date" but most newbie users won't know that.
Bangs are great if one knows about them, but again newbies probably won't know about them so they won't be aware they can use them.
Lastly, by putting up subsearch options such as "images", "video", "news", "meanings", "definitions" don't come up for all search terms. So by limiting which of these options come up, DDG is in fact "bubbling" searchers -- just as it claims to not do so. And some searches also do NOT bring up an option. For example, searches for "antelope", "buffalo", "bear", "eagle", "elk", "manatee" do not bring up Maps, when there are places with these names (e.g. Antelope County , Nebraska; Antelope, California; Antelope, Newfoundland -- yes, there is a marquee that comes up, but no Maps option). Even a search for "Antelope, California" does not bring up a Map option.
