    As a Google search alternative, I would suggest Whoogle. Just recently found out about it, self hosted it and it seems great.

    I found the same thing. Normal searches work great on DDG but finding obscure documentation is harder. I set up a proxy search engine with Whoogle, which uses google’s search engine but strips out the AMP links, tracking parameters, and ads.
