    I use librex it’s not very popular but it works pretty well actually. It also searches torrents which can be pretty helpful. Uses no JavaScript and is completely open source. Fetches from google and various torrent sites.

    If you're Turing your VPN on because it's blocked, you can use LibreX's torrent search, which indexes a bunch of torrent sites, including 1337x.

    Then don't. If it's because 1337x is blocked, use something like Librex and click on the torrents tab.

    Fair enough. If looking to use the code you may want to instead use the original project that has been used here. Some further context on my comment here.

    So far, there's not much shown to earn that trust, and there's a lot to make me feel uneasy. Upon the points I listed before in my previously linked thread: - This search seems to be a clone of librex, with a few edits applied, as pointed out in the other thread. You say you're working with them but I can't see anything to indicate that. That fact you have your crypto donations links make it seem like a donation grab using someone else's project. - There's a general lack of information and transparency at play. No info in the readme. No mention of it being from librex. No other repos in the parent group on GitLab. - Many of your apps and webpages mention being Open Source, but with no link/reference to the actual source. Midori Mail as one example (Which seems to use this project).

    I personally use GNU Icecat (GNU fork of Firefox ESR), because it contains 0% telemetry or non-free code. The only thing you really have to change when using GNU Icecat is the search engine, I personally recommend using Whoogle or LibreX because they contain no ads and don't require Javascript like Searx or SearXNG.
