** Apologies if this is an old or duplicated suggestion, but I have searched for it... **

It's great that DDG flags search results that are direct links to PDF files, but I personally would find it very convenient to see PDF results displayed as an Instant Answer similar to how images and videos are. Perhaps it can be triggered by the inclusion of "PDF" in the search criteria...

PDF files are more like text files than images files. It doesn't make much sense to single out PDF files.
And PDF files are not as poplar than images

Why not use something like pdf.js to render them in a carrousel like images, videos, etc?
