Updating my settings and I noticed some foreign language in my Settings & Appearance tabs, German AND Italian respectively.
So what's the apple DDG?
EDIT... keep finding more!
Has someone spilt a bag of foreign language in the search engine and not cleaned it up? hmmm?

DDG does not place cookies in your computer.
Instead, in settings (bottom left hand corner) Bookmarklet and settings data <<<bookmark or speed dial the address you get for this after loading your settings from the cloud. You get your settings as a URL parameter bookmarklet.
What would be cool is if somehow we could add the bookmarklet URL address to the search engine search box.

Funny, I just logged in here to request the very same thing.
Searches I do keep bringing up results from say 2007 and as such are not relevant today (security software searches for instance)
How easy/hard it is make DDG search by time I would not know, but please try to add this very important search engine feature.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling what i hate about the new look

I guess many of us came to DDG for many different reasons, the reason I came looking for a new search engine in the first place was because of auto recommend/completion, It franky fk's me off.
To see it here now makes my teeth itch, the default should be OFF, if people want it it should be applied via their personal settings.
That's my two penneth worth.
