I know that it's not a function of qutebrowser, but other way of searching almost wherever is, provided you have duckduckgo as your default search engine, using bangs. For example, an equivalent of

> :set searchengines yt https://youtube.com/results?search_query={}
> :open yt foo.

would be

:open foo !yt

Obviously, this is slower as you have to load (a very light version of the) duckduckgo page first, but I think it might be of your interest.
