Any way to change the forum search from Google?

I was doing a search within the forum today and it didn't have any hits. But it did have a big search with Google button.

Can that be changed to DDG or Startpage? I'm not finding much beside a feature request from 2015 on the Discourse forum.


I don't believe our Discourse search engine uses Google. I could be wrong, but I believe it self-indexes and searches.

I've never seen a search with Google button when searching the forum either

@Orajnam share a screenshot please

Do a search that gives no results and it will offer Google;
