its good i love it and its proof that there is no perfect search engine yet
Now we know that all search engines other than the best searx instances are trash. A good searx instance (better than the ones listed below) could meet all of the requirements in this comparison and should be the best option for web searches. Image results are still terrible regardless of which instance or search indexes you use. Just use DuckDuckGo (based in US, for-profit, no proxy/cache, partnerships with yahoo) or Startpage (owned by advertising company, only google results, Captchas which require javashit, no onion service) for images.
