Great! But...

This is by far the best browser app, especially with the latest update. It is transparent, has a good cause, dark mode, ad and
tracking blocker... and lots more. But I do have one problem with it, when I go to add a website to my “bookmarks” it puts it
in a big long list with the others. There needs

New update A+!!

This new update makes the mobile app actually usable for me. I always wanted to use it before but kept going back to firefox
because it had more useful features, now I can use ecosia with ease! Thanks, ecosia team!!

Fantastic new update and sleek as ever

I absolutely love the sleekness of the newest update, the dark mode is awesome. The reader view is a great addition, I love the
settings/extras tab on the bottom now for the phone edition. Private browsing is also a huge plus. All in all, I have no
complaints at all and love using your browser and s

Congratulations Ecosia! I’m a fan of yours now. To me, that’s definitely saying something because I typically do not like the
internet and wish that we could go back to 1985 when there was no internet! So much has changed with the advent of the Information
Age. People are more greedy, selfish, deman

Can Ecosia have a dark mode please? It helps reduce energy consumption and some people have sensitive eyes !(:

It’s my favorite!

With Ecosia I get a beautiful easy to use SE that helps me research everything! I also get to plant trees to make this world
glorious and healthier! I use this so often I must have a small forest somewhere on Earth.

Nice app

I’m giving it a five star review because it works really well. I can use it to search and it works just as good as a normal
browser. The only thing it doesn’t have is a request desktop site feature and that’s the only reason I still use other browser
with ecosia search.

Great app but where’s the dark mode

I love the idea of this app and have used it as my main search engine. I was just surprised that there is NO dark mode option,
which seems commonplace for apps nowadays. Please, make this a feature!! Thank you guys for your work!

Great app! But where is my country?

Hello! I loved the app but I have a small question, if my country is not among the countries when I wanted to select it in the
adjustments section, that means that they do not have a team to plant trees here? Or it means that the app is justo not adapted
for my country? I'm from Bolivia

I love it and it’s great but

I’ve been using the app for just over a year now and I use it for mostly everything. I love how the windows don’t close like
in other browsers when you spend too much time away. Overall it’s easy to use and highly recommend.

However if I could change one thing I would give it a dark mode setting. I

Love it!! But can be impractical

Love the app it’s a great cause!! But I think some things could be improved.
-The way different tabs are organized can be inconvenient and confusing. It would be a bit better if they were organized more like
safari or google.
-The search results could be more current and the way images are organize

Amazing Cause, Great App

Let's be honest. We're human beings. We enjoy convenience, instant gratification and money. In all these things, that comes at a
cost, and it's destroying our planet. It will kill us too, if we don't work to repair the damage we're doing.

Ecosia is an amazing organization and its cause is just. The

You give up some functionality for a good cause. I have this as my main browser and have another as back up when i need a

I love the message behind this company, and it works! It’s not a scam even though it seems too good to be true! There are some
kinks that I think need to be ironed out. For reference, these issues are on my IOS phone with the lad test IOS update.

Great on the computer but not so much on mobile

I use this on both my phone and my laptop. On my laptop everything is fine and I really like using it. It is obnoxious to use on a
phone and honestly if it didn’t help plant trees I probably would use google instead. It’s just a bit hard to navigate
that’s all.

Overall Amazing! My suggestion...

This works amazing (for me at least) I can’t seem to find a problem with it but something that would help more people actually
want it is to make its design and overall use slightly similar to other browsers. For example maybe on a laptop/computer version
you could make the plain white background be

Love it- just one suggestion

This app is so awesome. However, Safari offers a few more features that makes their browser more appealing. Most notably the find
on page feature. I would really love it if this app could implement something similar.

It’s a good cause, and it works well but just two things.

1) I have not found an incognito mode

2) the back button doesn’t work very well because it can’t take you out of a site

Otherwise great stuff 👍

Ecosia is definitely worth it :>

For starters, I’d just like to say the fact that Ecosia as a browser is helping to save the Earth simply through our use of the
internet is amazing. The money generated through ad-revenue is used to plant trees, and that alone is what convinced me to
download this application. I think if you want to

This app is great

It’s a decent search engine and i appreciate that the ads i’ll be forced to look at on any app will go to good use here :)
Ecosia lets you see the progress in tree planting and other climate efforts, so you know it’s the real deal.
Ecosia is definitely underrated.

I love your apps transparency, and contribution to climate. I can say I trust you, especially more then Google whilst getting just
as many results through your search engine with no glitches thus far. I’ve made it my default search browser. I do think a dark
mode would be cool.

i love that i can use this somewhat more sustainable option to search the internet :) i would like to use this app more however

- a reader view option would be great
- possibly an automatic definition/synonym

Love it for casual searches

I've been using Ecosia for maybe a year and have gotten 3,297 searches. I love the idea of planting trees and supporting local
communities where they can benefit from Ecosia's sponsorship. While I don't use it for schoolwork, I use it for casual searching,

Love Ecosia, don’t love the new layout

I’ve been using this app for a while (have contributed to almost 50 trees!) and loved having it as a dedicated search app. If I
found something I’d want to keep for the future, I’d open it in my browser. But now Ecosia wants to /be/ the browser? That’s
not what I want to use it for.

Recommendations & Criticism

- I like the "Projects" screen which details the active efforts through using the app for searches;
- I like the simplicity of the browser;
- I like that you can view the financial reports from Ecosia, to see where the funds are going and who the partners are;
- I like that it informs you of

Great idea, browsing experience lacking

I think the idea behind Ecosia is great.

However, every other day I have to fill out a lengthy CAPTCHA before I can do any search, because I get:

“ Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the
