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.

Love DDG, hate the redesign

I Love DDG but removing the full url from the search results by default is fairly dangerous in many situations.

Still, better than Google's mine field of companies paying to get to the top of results only to push malware or impersonate someone else's firm.
Google's vetting of these fraudsters seems completely absent all the while they're tracking everything you do, on nearly every major site and selling that info on.

Modern life is rubbish.

Go to top-right menu (the three dashes), and enable the option to display full URLs.

My pleasure.

Thanks, I was looking for that option and wasn't finding it.
