We have a bunch of tickets for adding those engines, see: #19208 (and #27974) for searx, #19768 for qwant and startpage is even already included. We should make progress on those specific tickets and then revisit whether we think we should need something more.

We include Twitter, Google, and Wikipedia because users are using them. You don't have to, though.

Duping this over to #19208 and #19768.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
