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.

How do you think Google make money?


Supposedly through ads. Not some kind of under-the-table promotion of search results.

And what do you think that orange "Ad" label next to these "under-the-table promotions" means...?

I'm talking about Google's apparently biased promotion of junk commercial sites in the standard search results, not the "sponsored ads". I don't even mind the sponsored ads, and if I'm searching to purchase something I occasionally even find them useful. But what I'm talking about are NOT Adsense ads or "sponsored results", but Google's apparently programmatic bias toward commercial sites and less toward relevancy of keywords and results.
