I' now view venture-funded vs. bootstrapped as just as important a distinction as proprietary vs FOSS.

VCs invest in companies that they think will either 1) fail or 2) as 10× as big. No one can grow 10× by organically growing their current user base with a good product—they have to change *something*. And those changes frequently harm/abuse current users.

So, I'm suspicious of , , and software can't make up for perverse growth incentives.

@dev @liaizon Couldn't you just add for example an OSM link to the HTML content?

@mayel @dym@merveilles.town Just out of curiosity - is searX unable to retrieve results for you today, due to google captcha?

If so, fairly sure we're seeing Google responding to this "threat" to their tracking everyone - i.e. "these indexes are ours, we created them, and we alone will use them."

This illustatres well how a lot of users of the big centralised platforms think, or at least how a lot of journalists portray the situation, not even mentioning the valid alternatives a lot of the time.
