Thanks!

I think I'll post the bug on GitHub so that we can update its status with changes.

Thanks for the suggestions!

This list was originally curated using the previous forum platform, so I don't seem to be able to edit it at this moment :)

Not of most importance, but I found that apparently it has a problem establishing a session sometimes.


Code:
Code:
sub wiz_running { defined shift->session->{'wizard'} }



It's kind of similar to this one https://github.com/duckduckgo/community-platform/issues/153.

I might try to attempt resolving this problem on GitHub.

Not sure exactly what causes this, but this error comes up periodically, and sometimes doesn't allow me to post my comment.

In the 2014 donations DDG gave the generous amount of $35,000.

You mean in the sense of giving to charity?

DuckDuckGo has had a history of giving to Open Source projects, here is the latest: https://duck.co/blog/foss2014

These links sum it up pretty well. DuckDuckGo uses various sources to aggregate results, and in that sense it can be considered to be a "hybrid search engine". This page explains where it fetches its results from https://duck.co/help/results/sources

However, if you could submit your website as a !bang if it has a search function that people could consider useful https://duckduckgo.com/newbang

Honestly, I love the new settings page- it boasts an overall much cleaner interface :)

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Please have something similar to Google instant. 3 years and 6 months ago
I have heard many people suggest this, but personally in my opinion I do not think it's necessary for the following reasons:

- DuckDuckGo, unlike Google, is significantly more focused on providing exactly what the user is looking for (through means such as zero-click answers), while Google instant often suggests other searches that may get you side-tracked.

- Because of the search suggestions DDG has integrated, I really don't see it necessary.

- I'm not sure if it would currently be an issue, but when it was suggested way back Gabriel Weinberg mentioned that it would hog too much bandwidth (delivering the results for each keystroke)
