bangs

I like the bangs but do not use them very often and therefore cannot rememeber them quite well.
Is there any chance to get a link to them in the new menue e.g. together with "feedback" and "gemeinschaft"?

It's already accessible through the menu, though not with one step.

[Menu] > Help > Features > !bangs > !bang page

I agree that it's rather indirect and not easy to discover unless you know what you are looking for. But usually if you look for bangs you already know, so it's the question of balancing the minimalistic interface with how important that information is to bring it to the top level...

maybe make sense on top level as it is a nice and specific ddg feature and!!
a shortkey make no sense when you need two taps plus srcoll plus three more taps to get to the list.
In the former layout wasn't there a list in the searchfield which grows or learn the bangs you used?
And wasn't there a direct link to bang and ducky in the search menue?
