Hey!

I've updated some of our display code to handle international domain names better. I'd really appreciate if people would test it out and let me know if there are any issues. We want to keep making DuckDuckGo great for everyone, and that means making sure the URLs are really easy to read in any language.

I've attached an example.

Excuse my ignorance as I did not know it was/is possible, but is that a top level domain in unicode?

I mean I can read it -sort of- but yeah I could not tell you what it means or says exactly.

I'm running Firefox build 31.0 on GNU/Linux if that helps...(And here is what I see from my end).

Exactly the same here. Also using Linux and Firefox 31.0
But the same result is showing to me with Opera version 12.16 build 1860.

I think I've confused things; sorry! I'm not referring to the image attached in this post. That is just an example. I'm saying that we now have better support for unicode domains. Since I mostly speak english, it's hard for me to find such domains.

Ahh okay. I'm just going to take a step back and say I don't know much about this..
