Previously, you can select search engines but sometimes back you can't. I think it was last year that search engines selection was removed.

I use the when I'm not using Brave. You can still select search engines.
I can't do a selection.

HarborFront, how do you know that's a secure instance?

In short, hosting your own private instance is the most secure. Otherwise you need to trust the public instance that others host

Search Engine Party Now I remember where I decided to go for disroot. But in this site there are few serx(ng) instances,
so SearXNG instances (but here there's no disroot 😅)
If you can't trust this, you can't trust anyone or anything. ;)
