Ugly Duck

Hey now I hope that everybody here is open minded enough to not hate me for this but first let me start by saying that I LOVE DuckDuckGo and I want this search engine to make it REALLY big BIGGER than that other one that tracks everything about you. Now after sucking up a bit when I go to the DDG homepage I have to look at this ugly and frankly stupid looking duck thing. DDG is better than that ugly thing. DDG has a beautiful design but the logo is just rubbish. Please DDG can't we do better than that? I mean he has one little hair sticking up like Alfalfa from The Little Rascals and a bow tie? Really a freaking bow tie?

IN LOVE I PROMISE, greenman.

Would you prefer a regular tie? Btw I believe that's two feathers not 'one little hair'.

Being on topic. I very much like the current DDG mascot as in my opinion it gives off a warm and friendly vibe.

That's cool, it's a matter of taste. Personally, I like Dax and find him to be fun, especially on special days when the designer play dress a duck with him. FYI, the Dax logo was updated for the new version of DDG. The changes are subtle, but it is a bit cleaned up.

One work around is to simply by-pass the DDG home page. If you search from the DDG add-on\extension or if you have your address bar configured to do double-duty as you search, you'll go directly to the DDG results page, where you'll see a much smaller (and potentially less annoying) version of Dax.

Since the company is doing amazing things it will get bought anyway and the logo will change then.
