is searx having problems (no matter the instance)?
I've been having errors like: ``` Error! Engines cannot retrieve results. qwant (unexpected crash) Please, try again later or find another searx instance. (Public instances) ``` Or: ``` Error!

Edit: working right now, as well as some other instances... Thanks !
