Imasse is a search engine based in Lakewood, Colorado[2] with the mission to raise the standard of academically based information in a safe, secure, user-friendly environment[3]. Imasse donates profits to nonprofit organizations that focus on providing everyone with an education[4].

Search engine[edit]

At the beginning of Imasse's first launch, Imasse's search results were provided through Google's Programmable Search Engine to provide fast reliable searches you could count on[5].

Imasse's search results are now provided by Microsoft Bing and are further enhanced by Imasse's own algorithms in order to provide the most reliable information for academic research. Alongside these search results, Imasse provides search ads from the Yahoo Partner Ad Network[6] which are used to generate revenue for the non profits[7].

In 2020, Imasse has made the commitment to becoming a privacy-friendly search engine. This means all searches are made through an encrypted connection and no data is stored or sold to third party advertisers[8]. Learn more[9]

Imasse is available as an online web browser, mobile widget for iPhones, Androids and Windows phones, as well as a Chrome Extension.[10]

History[edit]

Imasse began development on September 1st 2018. By August 31st, 2019 Imasse's first prototype began being tested. This prototype provided search results that would filter out all content that was appropriate for schools all through the use of the Google Programmable Search Engine[11]. However the use of Google's Programmable Search Engine caused some drawbacks and wasn't allowing Imasse.com to be to standards of other search engines such as Google.[12] Imasse was dedicated to providing results that would be up to par with other search engines, so they were constantly making improvements to grow the credibility and quality of the search service.[13]

On April 23rd, 2020 the search engine decided to make a big change in migrating all search results from Google to Microsoft Bing. This decision allowed for better privacy for the search engine allowing it to be completely privacy friendly as well as showing unbiased results providing the best user experience. As well as provided Videos, News, and Image search functionality to be added to Imasse.com.[14] This switch was vital to the growth of the company as now it was able to provide search results equivalent to Google, Yahoo, and Bing.[15]

On August 10th, 2020 Imasse became a legal entity, known as IMASSE, LLC[2] and launched the new Imasse beta to be used by anyone for free, as both a mobile widget as well as a chrome extension[16] that replaces your new tab and search engine to Imasse anytime you use Google Chrome on your computer completely free.[17]

As of July 1st 2020 Imasse has made it their mission to provide everyone with a free education and started putting their profits to Pencils of Promise[18] so they can provide as many people with an education no matter what.[19]

On December 21st, 2020 Imasse official partnered with DDC (Domain Development Corp) to facilitate search ads through the Yahoo Partners Ads solution. This was a large shift in profit generation for Imasse, will now be able to raise money for non profits,[6]

On December 30th, 2020 Imasse made their first donation to Pencils of Promise.[7]
