DuckDuckGo Redesigns Search Results to Add Places, Images, AutoSuggest

DuckDuckGo has given itself a facelift with a new design that incorporates autosuggest, places, images, and more into its search results.

“Over the past year, as our userbase and community have grown substantially, we’ve heard great feedback from new and long-term users,” DuckDuckGo said in its announcement. “Now, we’d like to show you how we’ve incorporated your feedback with a reimagined and redesigned DuckDuckGo.”

Here’s a sample query to start exploring:

Thai in San Francisco

From there, you can explore places in a carousel format, images, and more. The search engine is encouraging users to use the “Give Feedback” button in the bottom right corner of the screen.

DuckDuckGo is working out kinks while the new design is in beta, and listed some known issues:

  • 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.

It was just a few months ago that DuckDuckGo celebrated 1 billion searches in 2013. The company is now averaging nearly 5 million queries per day. The search engine became an alternative for those seeking anonymity in a post-PRISM world.

DuckDuckGo said it hopes to make the new design the default version of the search engine, “but that timing really depends on what we hear from you.”
