It is not as good search as chrome but for the good it's doing it is definitely worth it. I have a bookmark of Google just in case I need something else to search it. The ads are exactly the same amount as Google and you don't have to click on them. The number of trees you have helped plant on the corner is an average of how many searches. If you don't click on an as it doesn't help but if you click on too many it doesn't work
I love everything about Ecosia! The only thing I have to comment on is that every new search opens a new tab - which I like. But then I have 22 tabs open before I know it. So maybe a "close all tabs" button would be nice instead of having to swipe away every single new tab.
Thanks for the opportunity to do something good for the environment just by something as simple as using a search engine. The browser seems to be basically Chrome with Ecosia search engine so it works well. I've set the Ecosia search engine as my default on my PC too. On mobile you don't notice any difference between Ecosia and Google search. on PC Ecosia search is almost as good as google but for other features like maps, Google is definitely better. Btw since you get the money for planting trees from ads you should try getting better ads instead of unknown companies and viruses.
Just for all those people who said it is just like google and you can't block the adds... I mean seriously? The reason you use it is to plant trees... Not to be better than Google. I loved it and I think it is for a great cause.
WOW. What an app. It took me less than a minute to fall in love with the UI. Usually you find apps with a purpose can be a bit dodgy and suffer from glitches and lack of compatability. However this is seem less. I have one request and that is to not make the mistake of chrome and have an entire book squeezed into a menu. Maybe put a bar along the bottom to bookmark the page! Other than that it's stunning!!
Been using for just over 1 week. It's good, and IF we are really helping to plant trees using this browser than others then that makes it great! Is it true it only applies when clicking through Ads?
