Do you know what Music Browsing Extension is?
Music Browsing Extension is one of the newest music-related browser extensions that can be downloaded directly from the Chrome Web Store. This piece of software has been created as an alternative to popular music streaming services like Spotify. Unfortunately, we could not confirm that it is superior to other existing digital music services. After a thorough analysis, our experienced team of researchers has decided to classify this add-on as a potentially unwanted program. Potentially unwanted applications are not malware, but they have drawbacks and, in some cases, have bugs that do not allow them to work properly. Luckily, this is not the case with Music Browsing Extension; however, since other 100% reliable services are available on the market, it would be a sin to let this potentially unwanted program stay. If you decide to eliminate it, we are sure you will erase it without difficulty. You just need to remove the browser extension named Music Browsing Extension from your Google Chrome browser. Fortunately, this piece of software is not compatible with any other web browser. Theoretically, its new versions may work on Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome browsers as well.
Music Browsing Extension looks like extremely useful software. It promises to enable users to listen to songs and albums produced by their favorite websites, create playlists in the blink of an eye, and discover new music easily. Therefore, a bunch of users install it on their computers without even finishing reading its description available at the Chrome Web store, its official source. As a consequence, they find out that it changes Google Chrome settings once installed on the system only when they actually install it on their computers. The default search tool you use to perform web searches will be changed to http://search.searchmedia.online/, which uses Yahoo. If you perform web searches using it, for example, type a search query in the URL bar of your web browser, you may be presented with the modified search results. Modified search results promote third-party websites that, usually, do not contain the smallest piece of information a user is searching for. Of course, we do not say that you will necessarily encounter them if you keep Music Browsing Extension installed, but this is quite a prominent drawback it has. Researchers say that this potentially unwanted application may perform other activities many users find undesirable as well. For example, it may present you with advertisements. Most probably, you will see them on the extension’s window. Also, as long as you keep this potentially unwanted application active on your system, it will use “a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect information about how the Service is accessed and used.”Music Browsing Extension screenshot
