Ecosia News Search

Ecosia is a search interface with its own start and result page. Currently the content comes from Bing, in the past Google and Yahoo were used. Ecosia markets itself as a green search engine that uses part of its revenue to plant trees. Ecosia comes from Germany and was developed by Christian Kroll.

Initially, the results were incorporated into a separate interface. Today (2019) only the headboard is designed by Ecosia, the result part corresponds to a simplified edition of Bing. All vertical searches (image, video, news) correspond to the Bing output page in simplified form.
