Unique Idea, non-profit company that helps to make the planet green. You can plant trees by searching the web via Ecosia. They use the profit made from your searches by planting trees. It takes 1-2 search to plant a tree (Varies in different countries) Nice, keep the good works :)

Looks nice, they are doing something amazing. But the site is not fully fledged yet. Though search results are pretty accurate, it is not fluid in all field yet. Rest is okey

Eco-friendly and transparent. However, search results vary in reliability and I constantly go back to Google, which is carbon neutral anyways but has bad privacy practices.

Ecosia is a browser that is similar to Google, however it uses its ad money to plant trees. It runs on Bing tho, which is not 100% carbon neutral. Probably does not matter though. The website itself is 100% safe, but like all search engines you can find some.... interesting things. The only reason i rate it 4/5 is because you can get viruses, and find pornographic content. However, this is the same for all browsers.

In my opinion Ecosia is the best search engine. It respects privacy, is made in the EU (Germany) and they plant trees with their income. You can find transparent insights about their tree planting projects and their income on the website. Ecosia is also a verfied B-Corp company.

Ecosia is a great browser that helps me plant trees. I really like the concept and it acts like a normal safe browser. I also scanned it on VirusTotal and the results are clean.
