 Replying to [comment:1 proper]:

 engines and pick for each request a different default search engine,
 chosen randomly.

 If that is something to be considered would it be possible to have this as
 an option?

 I personally like to know where my queries end up, before I make them.

 Generally I'm *not* against this approach. I'm not sure how TBB users will
 see this. It could also feel like a bug, when query A ends up on search-
 engine X and query B on Y, so it would need to be stated somewhere to
 avoid confusion and bug-reports.
