a comment on the General Rambling Please add transparent background indication for image search 2 years and 6 months ago
Can you please add some way to indicate transparent background in the image search / preview ? Like some checkered pattern for example. Right now DuckDuckGo provides simple white background, and there is no way to see if the actual background is transparent or not.

Thanks.

All the same problems like Facebook and G+ (centralized network, not open source and etc.). So what will uphold the manifesto besides promises? If you care about those values better use real alternatives which actually solve them using technical means.

Any idea where better to report it? I submitted it to Hangtouts group, since Google talk one is frozen, but with all that Google's push to non federated Hangouts, I suspect this will never get "fixed".

Out of my contacts, the vast majority are Google users, so this change cut off more than 90% of them. I agree with the idea, but without fixing it on the Google's side it literally forces me either to register on Google's server again, or to ask my contacts to make an account elsewhere, and both of those options don't sound realistic.

Did anyone file a bug to Google about it? Is there any point to bother or they won't even care about fix this?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling bangs 4 years and 3 months ago
It's already accessible through the menu, though not with one step.

[Menu] > Help > Features > !bangs > !bang page

I agree that it's rather indirect and not easy to discover unless you know what you are looking for. But usually if you look for bangs you already know, so it's the question of balancing the minimalistic interface with how important that information is to bring it to the top level...
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling How to follow up on the bang suggestion? 4 years and 4 months ago
Thanks. In the current system, would it at least send an e-mail about the result if I entered the address in the suggestion form?

"Forget me" is a ridiculous censorship idea.
a comment on the General Rambling How to follow up on the bang suggestion? 4 years and 4 months ago
I submitted a suggestion for one new bang. How can I later check the status of that proposal (whether it was accepted or not)?

Thanks.

Sorry, I didn't realize there was a dedicated thread for this, so I posted some issues here:

a comment on the General Rambling Customizing font color in the search string 4 years and 4 months ago
I like color customization in the settings, but one element at least is missing there - the color of the font in the actual search string. I'm using a dark desktop theme, and it transaltes to gray font by default, which looks pretty bad and barely readable on the gray background (see below - there is an actual word "fontconfig" typed into the search string).

While there is an option of dark theme on DDG, it would be nice for default one to allow changing the color of the search string as well.

Thanks.
