Do you consider Bonzersearch.com to be a helpful and reliable search tool? Our research has revealed that this search engine cannot produce search results, but it could have been revived by the time you are reading this report. Even if it did show search results, we could not recommend trusting this tool because it is likely to showcase advertisements. Although the search engine is meant to be “Powered by Google Custom Search,” you cannot compare it with Google Search. This search engine is well-known and reputable, but the “Custom” engine can be customized by whoever is using it. That means that the creator of Bonzersearch.com can easily modify the results – the base of which are the results you would find using Google Search – to include third-party links. This might be one of the main reasons to remove this search tool from your browser because sponsored links could be malicious.Bonzersearch.com screenshot

In non-techie terms:
Although our research team does not identify Bonzersearch.com as a browser hijacker or a malicious threat, you certainly need to be cautious about it.
