Do you know what MoviesFriendly Search Toolbar is?
For those of you who spend a lot of time looking for information about films or TV content on the Internet, MoviesFriendly Search Toolbar might sound like a useful browser extension, but according to our researchers, it is nothing more than another potentially unwanted program providing useless features. Besides, users should know the software's provided search tools might show third-party advertising coming from unknown sources, we cannot be one hundred percent sure, but there is such a possibility. We will discuss the application’s features further in the text, so if you are not yet familiar with its working manner, we recommend reading the rest of the article. As for users who cannot stand MoviesFriendly Search Toolbar and want to search the Internet with a different search engine, we would suggest using the deletion instructions located below the article.
The potentially unwanted program comes from a web page called friendlyappz.com. It can also be found on chrome.google.com/webstore. Even though the application’s rating on Chrome Web Store page looks good (4 out of 5 stars), there does not seem to be any good user reviews. For example, one of the users wrote a complaint; it seems he has to type google.com if he wants to search the Internet with it because MoviesFriendly Search Toolbar placed a different search engine on his browser.
The application does not exactly change users default search engine or homepage, but it instructs the user to type letter “m,” place a space and only then write a keyword. Apparently doing so redirects user’s search query to a modified search engine called f.gomovix.com/search. What’s more, the tool should also provide an additional search box with movie genre categories in a separate pop-up window. It seems to us the user would get the same effect by simply typing “adventure movies” or other preferred genre’s title via Google, Bing, or another legitimate search engine. In other words, no matter what search engine you use if you type specific keywords mentioning words like movie or film, movie genres or titles; most of the displayed results will always be related to film content. Therefore, we do not think the features MoviesFriendly Search Toolbar provides are advanced or worth keeping a potentially unwanted program on the system.MoviesFriendly Search Toolbar screenshot
