Differences to searx
SearXNG is a fork of searx, with notable changes:
- Reworked (and still simple) theme:
- Usable on desktop, tablet and mobile.
- Light and dark versions (available in the preferences).
- Right-to-left language support.
- The translations are up to date, you can contribute on Weblate
- The preferences page has been updated:
- Browse which engines are reliable or not.
- Engines are grouped inside each tab.
- Each engine has a description.
- Thanks to the anonymous metrics, it is easier to report malfunctioning engines,
so they get fixed quicker
- Turn off metrics on the server if you don't want them recorded.
- Administrators can block and/or replace the URLs in the search results
- No need for Morty to proxy images, even on a public instance.
- No need for Filtron to block bots, as there is now a built-in limiter.
- A well maintained Docker image, now also built for ARM64 and ARM/v7 architectures. (Alternatively there are up to date installation scripts.)
- Readable debug log.
- Contributing is easier, thanks to the Development Quickstart guide.
- A lot of code cleanup and bugfixes.
- Up to date list dependencies.
