The year is 2023 , and I'm now paying for a search engine.

I've been using self-hosted SearXNG proxied through a VPN on Tailscale for the last 6 months and it works well. But after trying over the past week I've really come to appreciate all its features; more accurate results, instant summaries, quick answers, and different "lenses".

May go back to SearXNG at some-point, but we'll see.
