Everybody's favourite not-Google search engine - DuckDuckGo - has received a complete redesign and a whole slew of new features.

Today DuckDuckGo is launching a reimagined and redesigned version that focuses on smarter answers and a more refined look. This new version adds often requested features like images, local search, auto-suggest and much more.

Compared to today's Google, it looks incredibly clean, and the new features - for once - do not get in the way of the stuff that was already there. It must be hard to redesign and add new features to a search engine that is more or less known for being the opposite of Google, but I think they have managed to pull it off.

I'm talking about Google's apparently biased promotion of junk commercial sites in the standard search results, not the "sponsored ads".


I guess we cannot know for sure if they are doing that, but honestly, I don't think so. Why would they promote some sites for free when they also have sponsored ads? I think that is just the effect that those were clicked the most often. People do seem to go to stupid places, unfortunately.
