Searching with YaCy

YaCy is an interesting open source project, and I decided to give it a spin.

In the age of rising internet censorship, having an uncensorable search network is very attractive.

The installation is pretty simple, but would benefit from being added to Fedora's packages.

The results are still pretty slim, and the presentation may need an upgrade, but it sorta works. I think I'll keep using it as my default search engine for some time.

Oh, and it is easy to add it Firefox's search bar.
