We really need these

Hi, I’d like to use duckduckgo as a default search engine but it’s not working properly, When i type a word, it doesn’t show me any instant suggestions… it only shows my old search history… Most of the time i go to duckduckgo’s page and then i type something… because i like seeing some instant suggestions from the search engine, it really useful so Could you please fully integrate duckduckgo into Brave’s home page address bar?

I download so many things from the internet nearly everyday so it’s getting really annoying closing the Brave’s download bar everytime i downlaod something for I don’t need to see that big thic download bar at the bottom of the page everytime…
İs there a way to hide that? or Could you guys add a feature to hide that bar? it’d be really good, thank you.
