The interface of Iadah.co.uk is not very inspired. All we get is a search dialog box, which you can use to find original search results. Additionally, the easy-access links above provide us with access to the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page, the Terms of Use statement, and a page (iadah.co.uk/toolbar.html) that promotes the Iadah Toolbar. According to the official promotion, this toolbar can provide you with access to “a whole range of content,” which says a whole lot of nothing. Also, it is stated that the Yahoo Search Engine is introduced along with the toolbar. If you click the “Download” button to acquire this toolbar, you need to select the “Custom Installation” menu to have the chance to decline unwanted homepage and default search provider modifications.

When you download the Iadah Toolbar, you will be informed that the publisher of the installer is E-KANOPI, but the product information states that the publisher of the toolbar is DevNet.
