Note to the "official website"

It is not exactly the official website, as searx is available with many different URLs, if you want to see more URLs for searx, just look at the github-page. ;)

A great open-source project for search engines. It can pull results from many other search engines, and you can choose which ones you want results from. It doesn't make a personal profile of you, either, so although this may come at a cost of lack of personalized search results, it can't be used to track you. For the privacy-conscious, this is a good tool.

If you so desire, you can host your own instance as well.

This search engine is open source and aggregates results from many different search engines including Google, Bing, and Mojeek. Many instances don't even work and image results are terrible no matter what instance you use. A good searx instance such as this one is probably the best choice as of now. For images, just use something else (Startpage?).

A good search engine, just beware of instances with made by ButtFlare and those with cert issues. If you look at Github of official instances, you're safe.

I say that because I just noticed that the link of AltTo for searx leads to an instance in .world, this instance isn't official. the official one is searx.me (sourced from Wikipedia) and is without ButtFlare third parties
