Goodbye Google - Hello Ecosia

As probably all of us know by now, Google does not pay its fair share of tax, and does many other evil things like spying on us and manipulating search results.

However, good news!  There are many other search engines out there to use, for example Yandex and Baidu, but one of particular interest is Ecosia.  Not only does Ecosia produce excellent search results, it has a strong environmental ethos - it donates 80% of its surplus income to the common good.  Currently it is focussing on tree planting.

Simply Ecosia things you need to know and you can get your work done, not be spied on, be ethical (not use a tax-avoiding company), and help the environment all at the same time.  Everybody wins!
