Programmers are the greatest browsing community (SO mostly)…We can singlehandedly save the planet.
I use Ecosia and let me tell you, Google has nothing on this search engine.
It’s easy to free up your cache and delete cookies. The option is immediately viewable in settings instead of hidden away in the alcoves of who knows where.
Unless you favorite a page, it automatically clears it after 7 days, which is awesome if you hate clearing tabs like I do.
They plant trees everywhere.
Ecosia updates you on their progress- not with annoying update notifications, but with a button you can click as you type up your search if you’re curious.
The tree count is shown just beneath the search bar.
It is an app too and only takes up 18.2 MB. That’s the equivalent of nine live pictures on your phone.
You can view your own tree count. Mine’s 2,475 trees. I have had the app for six months. Do you know how much acreage that is? It’s a heckin’ ton of acres.
It has a safe search mode that actually works.
also worth noting that ecosia’s servers run on 100% renewable energy and that their tree-planting methods are very cool: https://ecosia.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360013316554-What-tree-planting-methods-does-Ecosia-use-
You can also add tab for a cause. Which is an extension for your web browser that gives you hearts to donate every time you open a new tab. And you can use ecosia as a search engine on it as well!
