The application is similar to SaveNShop, SharkManCoupon, SaveON, among others. It is based on the JustPlugIt engine, which is has been developed by the JustPlug It Company.

So, Browseandshop is compatible with the three most popular web browsers, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome. The problem is that company’s clients are in full control over the content. That means that various shady third parties can easily create their own apps and to program them to advertise whatever they want. Browseandshop could be programmed to display misleading or outright fake advertisements.

You ought to remove it, because scammers could create ads for fake online shopping websites. You could end up getting duped after purchasing an item and never receiving it.
