@azure and honestly, it's just been happily running on my laptop and been my main search engine on that machine for the past few months.
@azure Glad to help!
I tried selfhosting locally after discovering that most publically accessible instances tend to have captcha related errors due to being hit by bots.
@azure one thing i've been using is a self-run "searx" instance. that seems to be pretty dang useful.
lynx localhost:8888 and it can search DDG, google, bing, and other services.
bit slower ofc as it's requesting multiple sources, but i like it.
@azure oh, i didn't try that.
If you look at the screenshot, the majority of the links are dead...
@azure just gave it a test run, seems to work mostly alright. there are some complaints about invalid cookies that i had to accept tho.
