Description

➤ How it works

Ecosia is a search engine like Google, but very different: we use our ad revenue to plant trees where nature and people need them most. The Ecosia community has already planted millions of trees in Ethiopia, Brazil, Indonesia, Spain, as well as many other biodiversity hotspots.

➤ Privacy, not just promises

We're interested in trees, not your data: we don’t save your searches, we don’t track the websites you visit, we don’t sell your data to advertisers, and your searches are always SSL-encrypted.

➤ CO2 positive

CO2 neutral is not enough. Thanks to our solar plant and the Ecosia forests around the world, each of your searches removes around 1 kg of CO2 from the atmosphere.

➤ Radical transparency

Trust has to be earned. That’s why we publish our monthly financial reports and tree-planting receipts on our website. We also signed a legal contract that requires us to stay true to our not-for-profit cause, forever.

"Read and change data on all ecosia.org sites’ and ‘Communicate with cooperating websites," - so that our extension can talk to ecosia.org and vice versa.
"Change your search settings to ecosia.org" - this permission allows us to change your default search engine to ecosia.org
"Read and modify your most visited websites" - this permission is needed for the “New Tab” page so that we can display your most visited sites

➤ What others are saying:

“By making Ecosia your search engine you can actually help the environment one search at a time.”
– The Guardian

“If that's not incredible fundraising progress by a single company, we're not sure what is."
– Treehugger

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
