I think I found this bug: If you click on one of the images in the images tab you see it bigger, but it's cut off at the bottom.

I'm using Firefox 29.0.1 on Windows 7.

Hi,
I first want to say that I really like the new design. What I've noticed so far is that when you search for something that has lots of meanings (to be more precisely, I searched for "tmi"), you get an instant answer from Wikipedia showing all possible meanings. The problem is, that the articles appearing in the category "Top" (btw i really like that) appear twice, because they appear again later in another category.

I'm sorry if my english isn't very good.

Yes. I didn't see any big difference (although they may not be what you expect to be an ad in the internet).

I live in Germany. When I search for exampl for "Java" in DDG I get an advert in German even if I have set my language to english in the settings. This is kind of personalized, isn't it? And btw a lot of the sites of DDG's ads are categorised as dangerous by my Anti-Virus (Sophos).

For interpreted languages such as Python or Perl you could even add an interpreter.

So when I searched for "Perl Shell" I got an instant answer from Wikipedia. Only thing is that the article (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perl_Shell) doesn't exist anymore. Thought you might want to know.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Incorrect Stackexchange (Stackoverflow) instant answers 4 years and 1 month ago
So heres what I've found:

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=python+shell
This instant answer is somewhat too specific, I searched for "Python shell" generally, not the EMACS Python shell. It's not a that bad result, but it's not worthy of being an instant answer.

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=perl+script
So this one's definitely off-topic, I serched for Perl scripts not for converting Perl scripts to shell scripts.

https://duckduckgo.com/?q=python+cmd+mod...
This Stackoverflow Question is about two things (or more precisely, about how to combine two things, actually lots of Stackoverflow questions are). This makes it an inapropriate instant answer, too.

These are only some incorrect instant answers from Stackoverflow. I think I've seen more incorrect/off-topic instant answers from Stackexchange than good one's. A way to approch this problem would be only showing instant answers from Stackoverflow when all the questions tags are in the search term. This way you would get rid of the two-topic answers, which are most of the bad instant answers.

This one's difficult;it depends on the %s, since you have to decline the "New" in German.

You could move outside the U.S. They're not the whole world.
