I'm a long time user of DDG, and I'm really not satisfied with the new interface. Sure, I can change my cloud save settings to remove the annoying auto-complete, and also the annoying WIDE ribbon at the top. And I can use the classic interface and change my colors, but that does not fix all that is now broken.
+ The drop down selection for bangs is now missing. I used and liked it.
+ The box to the right with a list of specific, and relevant sites to the query is gone. I used and like it.
+ The neat and tidy box at the top of query's showing instant information is gone. No that WIDE ugly ribbon is not an alternative.
+ The new fonts and layout, quite frankly, look like one of those cheap free Wordpress templates that the spammers used to use to build Adsense pay sites. Ugly.
Honestly, I don't like it at all. I'll still use DDG because I like what you guys stand for, but I don't see how this interface is going to help drive traffic. Updating the look is a good thing, but get a designer for it next time. Please consider revising it again.
