>What is your use case for date restricted searches?
I need date restricted searches only occasionally. An example: Today I
was having an issue with Virtualbox on Ubuntu and my searches gave me
results including some for Ubuntu 10.04. I may not be always up to
date, but really!
>Which date range are you most interested in?
Varies, depending on what I'm searching about.
>Would sorting results by date be of use?
Perhaps, but perhaps not.
>DuckDuckgo does allow for six Google time ranges
Now, that is useful. But now I have another question. Why did
DuckDuckGo not come up with those when I asked about date searches?
>And while messing around looking for dates, I found I can do a quick
>translation to/from English and Spanish with !sdict
Can I ask about other languages besides Spanish and English? E.g., the
other day I needed to know the meaning of a Turkish word. And recently I
needed to make sense of several paragraphs of Estonian. Google translate
sucks rocks, but it got the job done.
