Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Vivaldi said the company wanted to give their users a chance to make a real difference to the environment just by searching the web.
Vivaldi CEO Jon von Tetzchner says Internet is one of the solutions for democracy.
One way to take some of the tedium out of browsing might be to do something good for the planet along the way. To help you do that, the browser builder Vivaldi has teamed up with the search engine Ecosia to create a scheme that plants trees while you browse.
When web users use the Ecosia search engine on new browser Vivaldi, ad revenue that Ecosia generates from these searches is used to plant trees in areas such as the Brazilian Atlantic forest and Burkina Faso in Africa.
