SearchScene is a search engine that donates most of its profits to charity.
Like most search engines, we make money from advertising. We donate most of these profits to charity. The charities we choose are varied and our profits are divided up between them. These are mostly international charities, reflecting the international audience that we have.
We aim to be transparent and so will publish donation receipts from the charities to whom we donate at the end of each tax year. We are currently in our first year of service so have nothing to show right now, but check back here to see the links to our charity receipts after our first year of being online.
By using Bing as a basis for the majority of our search results, we are able to give our users a truly first-class search experience. This gives you the enriched search experience that you get from a mashup of web results, top stories, image results, video results and topic summaries (knowledge graph) that only Google and Bing provide.
Who said search engines have to be boring? Apart from Bing, SearchScene is one of the only search engines to provide stunning background wallpaper images on its homepage that change daily.
Not only do you get a first-class search experience, but you can also slowly discover the world's most beautiful places via SearchScene.
If you want to keep today's wallpaper in place every day (instead of having it change daily), you can "Pin It" by selecting the Pin icon at the bottom right of the homepage's footer. Simply select it again to Unpin it and revert to the daily changing wallpaper image.
You can change your image category within the side menu and change your image resolution within Settings. If you prefer, the homepage scenery can be switched off completely within the settings page, resulting in a faster loading homepage.
You can also set your own homepage wallpaper by choosing an image from your computer or mobile device. Want a wallpaper image of your children, cat or favourite football team? No problem. Just select your own image using the button in the side menu of the homepage. It is worth noting that this image will not be uploaded to our servers, it will just be set locally on your machine.
