This is a great idea, thanks for the suggestion. We're looking into adding it.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling How do you do a site search for multiple domains? 2 years and 1 month ago
Thanks for reporting the issue. Unfortunately, the upstream source we're using for site search no longer supports multiple domains. We hope to find a way to bring that feature back in the future.

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling DDG redirecting to lite version 2 years and 2 months ago
Thanks for letting us know. There was an issue over the weekend with IE10 being incorrectly redirected to the lite version of the site. We pushed a fix earlier today, it should be all good now. Can you try again and let us know if you still have issues?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling duckduckgo.com does not go to start page - WHY? 2 years and 2 months ago
Thank you so much for reporting this issue. We made a change on Friday that was unintentionally redirecting users of Internet Explorer 10 to our extremely minimal DDG interface (https://duckduckgo.com/lite). We just pushed a change to fix this and things should be restored.

Were you by any chance using Internet Explorer 10? If not, can you tell us what browser you're using? If you were using IE10, can you try navigating to our homepage again and let us know if it's fixed?

Thanks again!

Welcome and thanks for the feedback! I totally agree. Do you have any example searches you could share where images would have helped?

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Why is "Redirect" in "Settings" turned off by default? 2 years and 7 months ago
The redirect setting will actually default to OFF now for certain modern browsers that support the meta referrer tag. The meta referrer tag solves the same privacy issues in a much more elegant way, you can read more about it here: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2015/0...
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling How does DDG choose between Foursquare and Yelp for the Places Instant Answers? 2 years and 7 months ago
Doh, sorry, you're right. We just disabled Foursquare temporarily last week. It will be coming back very soon along with the UI element to toggle between the two. Thanks for your patience!
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Why is there an iFrame on DDG search pages; what is it doing? 2 years and 7 months ago
It actually doesn't display any content. It's being used as a workaround in some browsers to strip the referrer header when you click on a link to another site. We do this to prevent third party sites from being able to see your search query.
