a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Blinders, is it still relevant ? 4 years and 4 months ago
Blinders is not relevant right now, but it will get a reboot at some point in the future, and at that point we'll let the community know.

We are working on a classic theme.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling DuckDuckGo Beta Refinements 4 years and 4 months ago
Thanks for the great feedback! This is all very useful and we will indeed have a setting to turn off auto-suggest.

I apologize if another thread made you feel that way. This is a community moderated forum.

We are not planning on maintaining our old code base. We are planning on making all of our settings work functionally on the new site and creating a classic theme that restores some of the old choices. In addition, you will be able to further tweak the settings to disable even more (auto-suggest, answer bar, etc.). We are planning on releasing a settings string you can use for both versions.

So to be clear -- this only breaks in pirate language mode?

If you change it back to the regular or reset to the defaults will it still give you no results?

Do you see an error in the error console?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Firefox: Nothing happens when clicking on "Image | Video | Definition" or Settings 4 years and 4 months ago
To all, we'd really like to get to the bottom of this ASAP.

To anyone who knows about error consoles, is there any error in the Firefox error console when you click on these links?

Also, are these by chance touch laptops?

That seems to be a bad bug! Is this repeatable for you on these queries? What browser/OS?

I hear what you were saying, and we discussed this a lot, but there will literally be hundreds of possible tabs that could come up, and there should be even more over time as we convert and add more open source instant answers. The idea was to surface only those that are relevant and which we have good data for.
a comment on the General Rambling DuckDuckGo Reimagined and Redesigned 4 years and 4 months ago
Over the past year, as our userbase and community have grown substantially, we've heard great feedback from new and long-term users. Now, we'd like to show you how we've incorporated your feedback with a reimagined and redesigned DuckDuckGo:

https://next.duckduckgo.com/

This next version of DuckDuckGo focuses on smarter answers and a more refined look. We've also added many new features you've been requesting like images, auto-suggest, places and more. Of course, your privacy is protected as well!

It is in beta and there are some known issues. In particular:
--not all settings work yet and the setting page itself is getting an overhaul
--not all instant answers work yet and some have not yet been redesigned
--IE8 is functional though not fully cleaned up yet

In the next month, we hope to make this the default version of DuckDuckGo, but that timing really depends on what we hear from you. There is a 'Give Feedback' button on the bottom right of search result pages that you can use to submit anonymous feedback (with optional query). We also encourage you to post to this forum so that the community can discuss your ideas.

To really give it a go, we suggest setting it as your default, which you can do at the bottom of the new homepage. Here are some sample queries to get you started:

https://next.duckduckgo.com/?q=green+day+videos
https://next.duckduckgo.com/?q=thailand+beach+images
https://next.duckduckgo.com/?q=define+superlative

Finally, thank you to the DuckDuckGo community leaders for all their help getting us get to this point! If you are a developer, you can also help us with the redesign of our open-source instant answers

UPDATE: we've updated the beta with refinements based on your feedback. More details here.
