I also have DuckDuckGo installed, as well as Startpage (in case I need Google results for some reason), but I don't generally find myself needing those search engines, as Ecosia results are very good.

Though It seems to have a genuine (non-scammy) pedigree, It acted like that genuinely BAD thing a couple of years ago (can't recall Its name) which changed your browser to some totally bad thing, and It was a bitch to remove It, AND - to add Insult to Injury - the ....person who's (a-hem!) company built It said it was a 'terrific application...many satisfied users'... and more BS.
I think their IDEA (planting trees), I just don't like this approach.
One other = VERY serious point; their material goes on about planting trees, ll well and good, but, much, MUCH more serious Is the wholesale SLAUGHTER of elephants, gorillas, and MANY other animals.
THAT'S DEPLORABLE AND MUST BE STOPPED IMMEDIATELY.
