Leaving #Duckduckgo for #Ecosia, and I think you all should too:https://youtu.be/zo93M_6Xl50https://youtu.be/psHSeKNGtxchttps://youtu.be/vb1GCsDgLBM
@ChameleonScales I love the tree planting part, but this is a show-stopper:
"when you do a search on Ecosia we forward the following information to our partner, Bing: IP address, user agent string, search term, and some settings like your country and language setting."
@gka does duckduckgo avoid that ?
@ChameleonScales yes, it's why DDG exists: https://duckduckgo.com/privacy
@gka That sucks. Thanks for pointing it out
@gka That said, using VPN or tor should get around this, so you'd have the environmental benefits without the privacy drawbacks.
