DuckDuckGo is out today with an update that brings support for dark mode to its Apple-powered maps and offers other improvements like re-querying.

Nice update to my default search engine for the last couple years. Granted, it doesn’t always hit the mark. But DDG’s support for search shortcuts (called ‘bangs,’ over 12,000 and counting) makes it easy to fill in the occasional gaps.
