  4. 4. VISIBLE vs. INVISIBLE Web “Typing “” into your web browser will take you to Google’s British search engine, however, for a search engine on the Darknet such as TORCH Search Engine, you cannot type in “” because the website is hidden from view. In order to go to TORCH you would have to know the URL, the URL for TORCH is “xmh57jrzrnw6insl.onion””
