a reply to a comment on the blog post What do security certificates actually do? 2 years and 4 months ago
I appreciate the kind comments!

Yes, I agree that it's always better to have even an invalid certificate than no certificate. You won't be able to trust the identity of the server you're communicating with but at least the content will be encrypted which offers some protection. Just be aware of this fact and as you say, be especially cautious with sensitive data such as login credentials.
a comment on the Instant Answer Idea Units of measure 2 years and 4 months ago
I think it's correct to use the term "US-based" but there should also be a separate "Imperial" measure (as well as metric).

a reply to a comment on the General Rambling O que acham desta ferramenta? 2 years and 4 months ago
Thanks for the link. I can't read Portuguese but using an online translator it looks like a really good explanation of how to make DDG the default search engine on Chrome.

Looks like the author also wrote one on the advantages and disadvantages of DDG (also in Portuguese): http://tecnologia.umcomo.com.br/articulo...

Thank you for the kind message - and artwork as well! I'll pass this on to the rest of the team.
You may have noticed the new feedback button at the bottom of desktop search results so feel free to use that (or these forums) to suggest your improvements.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Kudos on "Send feedback" 2 years and 4 months ago
Thanks for noticing! We've just written a blog post about it: https://duck.co/blog/post/228/feedback-b...
and are starting to receive feedback already which is great. I'll point the devs to your comment about bigger and bolder as well.
a comment on the Instant Answer Idea Unicode searches 2 years and 4 months ago
This seems to be already implemented:

so maybe it could just be improved rather than make a new IA.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling I would love to see a 'without' feature for searches, unless you have one that I am unaware of 2 years and 4 months ago
It should work for multiple minus/hyphen search terms. I just tried adding -dental to your search query and it removed the first dental clinic entry (as well as Arby's).

a comment on the Instant Answer Idea Sentiment analysis of text and external sources in DDG 2 years and 4 months ago
I'm not really familiar with sentiment analysis but an Interesting idea. My first instinct is that doing it as a Goodie seems like a lot of work and a Spice would be easier, but if all decent external APIs are commercial then that makes it tricky.

I'm not sure who would use a sentiment analysis of a single phrase but of a Twitter feed or something would be cool.

Thanks @grandesviajes. That's a good point. I use inurl:blog and inurl:forum as well when I'm looking for opinion or discussion pages.
