ecosia search

I thought that the ecosia search engine might be of interest. Their info page explains why.

Just a warning… The results seem to be taken from bing. I nevertheless like the idea too though.

Re: ecosia search

Btw, I’m learning about hypercentres and their role in ICT efficiencies in relation to Internet impacts on climate. While it doesn’t excuse them for being growth economies, I’m nevertheless happier knowing Facebook, Google, and Apple are 100% renewable-energy driven and have been for a while. I didn’t realize that, admittedly.

Twitter, on the other hand, and a number of other well-known streamers of fat media, are still powered by fossil energy, so if you needed another excuse to kill your Twitter account, etc, that’s as good as it gets.

Re: ecosia search

AppleInsider reports that Ecosia is “ now a default search engine option on iOS, iPadOS, macOS” (in Safari). You need to upgrade to macOS 11.1.

No more need for an extension.

Great news! I’ve been using Ecosia almost exclusively since Yiannis posted the link, and set it as my default search engine on any browser. Got a bunch of trees to my name on various devices, which feels good. And watched the worldwide planting counter hit the 100 million mark a few months back, which was a great milestone.

yes! Now if people would check and use those options, that would be even better.
