Running the Searx metasearch engine on OpenBSD  

Searx is a free metasearch engine. This means that it will aggregate search results from several search engines, like Bing, DuckDuckGo, Google or Qwant. But it will also interface with services like DailyMotion, DeviantArt, FramaLibre, GitHub, Reddit or Wikipedia to extract search results.
