Create a searx instance to search search engines on the users behalf

There is this open source metasearch engine called Searx. It searches dozens of search engines at once on the users behalf for convenience and privacy. It is easy to set up and is licensed under the Gnu Affero GPL v3 so it is free to use. I would work wonders until Brave can get its own search engine up and running and could even provide an alternative for users that prefer it. The Brave devs should be cognizant that providing access over the internet counts as distribution under the AGPLv3.

I read somewhere that brave aqquired their own search engine today and we will start make more money if we use that search enginge instead of google aswell? Is this true?
anyone know when this is coming
