You can use the left and right keys on your computer to go from one image to another as part of DDG's Images IA.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Can we have Europe as a region for searching? 3 years and 23 days ago
I agree with <hidden>. Searching by a larger geographic region than just individual countries would be useful.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Need google results without !g 3 years and 28 days ago
When you !bang your search to Google (or to any other search engine) through DuckDuckGo, you're privacy and anonymity is not protected. DuckDuckGo simply redirects your search to the search engine you requested.

If you want to search Google anonymously I would suggest trying out startpage.com.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Wikipedia Instant Answer with not updated results 3 years and 1 month ago
Continuing x.15a2's comment, Wikipedia requests that people using their API attempt to cache results for as long as possible so as to reduce stress on their servers. This may be the reason (I usually get mine to keep cached for a week).

Actually, I'd suggest you use Tor. Harder to set up but it's less likely to be spied upon. Good luck!

If you've previously used Amazon, it can figure out your recommendations from many other things (predictive recommendation is one of those interesting things that young computer people like me love creating during their spare time).

I would suggest you stop using Amazon anyway because it both tracks you and uses fulfillment centres. There are quite a lot of alternatives and probably worth the inconvenience.

If you stop using Amazon, I would suggest you go into your browser and delete all of Amazon's cookies.

What I'd really like is a sort of proxy search where you could use ?g to proxy Google's results.

Previews have been asked for many times before. I like the idea but I think the problem holding them back was to do with server resources (at least that's what would hold back me).

On the subject of the newspaper layout... That would actually be pretty cool as a theme. Really, it would be great if DuckDuckGo allowed you to customize your layout a bit.

However, it's worth noting: Don't you mean:

aaa | bbb
ccc | ddd

Otherwise you'd have to scroll all the way to the bottom of one column, then up to the top to go down the next one. Just saying. :)

I sure hope so.
