Description (last modified by tpregueiro)

Background

As previously discussed, we'll add Ecosia as secondary search engine in ABB.

For future reference, how search engines work in Adblock Browser

What to change

1) Add Ecosia to the list of installed default search engines. See attached search plugin configuration.

2) Make it available only on a few specific countries/locales:

  • US (US)
  • UK (GB)
  • France (FR)
  • Netherlands (NL)
  • Germany (DE)
  • Austria (AT)
  • Switzerland (CH)

These markets are the markets where Ecosia has the biggest number of users, so makes sense we only show this search engine for those users.

3) Priority-wise, for the countries defined in 2), should be the following: Ecosia comes before Wikipedia and Amazon. This is because Ecosia is a general-purpose engine, unlike Wikipedia or Amazon.
