just to be clear, DDG still supports multiple sites.

This doens't work anymore:

site:docs.FreeBSD.org/mail,lists.FreeBSD.org/pipermail

This works:

(site:www.FreeBSD.org OR site:docs.FreeBSD.org OR site:lists.FreeBSD.org OR site:wiki.FreeBSD.org OR site:forums.FreeBSD.org)

go to https://www.freebsd.org or https://www.freebsd.org/search/ (first form) and search for pgp, this is working there.

You can do a search that way, but the results are not as good. For instance, if you then change the date range to "past week", the multiple site version returns zero results while the single site version shows a commit made to net/keycloak. Additionally, clicking "All Results" on the multiple site version gives you a search for "pgp OR OR OR OR" rather than "pgp".
