#Totally unbiased comparison between alternatives

4get searx(ng) librex araa
RAM usage 200-400mb~ 2GB~ 200-400mb~ 2GB~
Does it suck no (debunked by snopes) yes yes a little

#Features

  1. Rotating proxies on a per-scraper basis
  2. Search filters, which SearxNG lacks for the most part
  3. Bot protection that actually filters out the bots (when configured)
  4. Interface doesn't require javascript
  5. Favicon fetcher with caching support & image proxy
  6. Bunch of other shit

tl;dr the best way to actually browse for shit.
