The layout of the settings page is still the old look, it really looks bad.

It's been discussed. Do you have suggestions how to improve the settings page? Are you looking for better navigation on the page, different page layout, reconfigured tab configuration?

Thanks

There is no red... ?
Square buttons are perfectly fine, thanks. What's the hipe with wanting things rounded at most ?

What red? The colors of the settings page match the theme that you have selected\created.

What shape should the buttons be? Why is the shape important?

The settings are a utilitarian area, not meant to be a place to hang out often and for long periods of time. You go in, make your changes and go back to searches.

I think what they are trying to say is that the settings page still has the skeuomorphic design of the old DDG with gradiented tabs, it hasn't changed to the new flat design like the rest of the website.

it should maybe light blue with like a flat 3d effect, like this one in the about page:

The link does not work, and what do you mean about a flat, 3D effect? The two descriptions contradict each other.

The blue does not fit with the rest of duckduckgo

It would be nice if it fit the same style as the new theme.
