Always having google suggestions..

No matter which search engine you use, could you make that? Or using keywords like on desktop version, like dkdk for duckduck, bg for bing, etc (you choosing them of course)..?

If you set your default to DuckDuckGo you can use their !bangs
eg. any search containing !google will go to google, !wiki to wikipedia, !amazon to amazon and a lot more. (search !bang to get a page listing all 6,391).
This is a bit different to keywords since it's parsed on their end and you'll have to use the shortcuts they've chosen, but it's an easy alternative.

About suggestions, are you asking to always show suggestions from google even when a different search engine is chosen? I'm not sure if that's doable.

Thanks for the bang, i totally ignored that. But i'd still like to make my own.. And no if you read again, i didn't ask for that. On the browser you select google and then you type your bang/keyword, it'll still use google suggestions since it's the one selected..

To be straight forward, i'd like disconnect.me to be the main Android PM search engine ;)

Sorry, I don't use search suggestions so I'm not sure what you can do with them, and how much of that applies to Android. Since PM4A is discontinued you might have better luck searching for a way to do this in Firefox, and see if it's compatible.

its better to use suggestion while we are searching for thing or topic, because sometimes we could not think what the exact query should be. It helps those people who could not make a good query in mind while searching a thing or service they want.
