I think this is a good idea as well, but suggest hosting our own node.
In this way we could harden it a bit more than the current one. e.g.
Default to DDG/StartPage/IXQuick, force image proxy instead of linking
to Bing/Google Images (which track IP), and use CACert for HTTPS over nginx.

I may be able to provide a host for one if this is deemed a good idea, I
was actually experimenting with Searx a few weeks back already and it's
not too difficult to deploy.
