Same here. Thanks DDG

I have seen this on my laptop, on IE 9 as well
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling The new way of presenting URLs is counter productive 4 years and 4 months ago
Isn't the main/home website part of the full URL?

I think that if DDG displayed full URLs by default, it would be more better overall, because people can still see the main/home website, and it would be so much more helpful for more advanced users who rely a lot on full URLs.

Or, how about displaying the main/home website a different shade/colour to the rest of the URL by default?

This helps. Thanks

Rick, you have misunderstood me:
"You've put a lot of work into your project"
"about the changes you've made to your search engine"
I am not a developer of DDG. It is not my project and I have not made changes to it.

I apologise for not knowing the code of the whistleblower sentence, thanks for giving an explanation (although try to shorten it by saying the direct meaning without giving examples, it's much easier to understand and less boring to read that way)
However, like I said, the developers have already explained why they are changing features in the link in my previous comment.

"I would say your good people"
*you're

One more thing, try to refrain from referring to the developers as 'geeks'. Just because they are part of developing a search engine, doesn't mean you can assume that they are all geeks.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Okay, where did "Classic" theme go? 4 years and 4 months ago
I think Classic theme was renamed Contrast, because people might confuse Classic with Retro.
Retro theme is the closest you can get to the old DDG in terms of colour, but if you want more results on screen, set the text size to small.

The link does not work, and what do you mean about a flat, 3D effect? The two descriptions contradict each other.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling force audio search 4 years and 4 months ago
I agree, I find audio results EXTREMELY helpful, but sometimes the tab doesn't show up when I want it to.
Could we have a trigger word (such as 'audio' or '!audio') to force the audio tab open in the results?

What do you mean by you've suddenly lost the ability to search images?
Image search is one of the new things on DDG, and Google images is still accessible via DDG by typing !gi

"if I have to turn on auto fill in (which I will NEVER do) to get back other features, forget it."
DDG has already taken note of this.

"I don't suppose the geeks implementing these cool changes would care to share with us why?"
Here's why: https://duck.co/forum/thread/6031/where-...

Lastly, I don't understand your "Or must we await a whistleblower?" sentence. What does it mean?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Settings page layout 4 years and 4 months ago
I think what they are trying to say is that the settings page still has the skeuomorphic design of the old DDG with gradiented tabs, it hasn't changed to the new flat design like the rest of the website.
