At first glance, Find.rockettab.com does not look harmful at all. It has been observed that its search function works well, and it is even based on Yahoo!, which is known to be a reliable search provider.

RocketTab used to be a simple advertising-supported application; however, it, apparently, evolved and comes as a search provider these days. This search engine is usually a part of some kind of browser hijacker (e.g. Snap.do, Houmpage.com, Thesmartsearch.net, etc.), which is why the majority of users cannot explain how and when Find.rockettab.com was set. Our researchers have checked the distribution of Find.rockettab.com, and now it is clear for them that this search provider usually replaces default search engines of users living in the United States and Indonesia primarily; however, it can undoubtedly appear on computers whose users live in other countries as well. We want to emphasize that Find.rockettab.com has two main variations: Search.rockettab.com and ISearch.rockettab.com. Believe us; they do not differ from Find.rockettab.com at all, so it is advisable to remove these search engines if they ever replace your default search engine as well.Find.rockettab.com screenshot
