Anyone here using a instance as default ? I find myself going back to Google often because my keywords don't bring good results... Is it just an adjustment period or do I have to be more specific with my search queries?

I'm used to Google figuring out what I want from at most three keywords, and searx doesn't seem to do that.

Maybe this is the search in a time before Google data?

@cringe The more Google knows about you, the more they can predict what you (usually) want. Being safe costs some effort, and being "lazy" costs a loo of safety.

@cringe yeah I’m using it every day with deactivated all directly google search. So, give it a try.
I’m running my own searX instance
