Do you know what Premium Tabs is?
Premium Tabs says that it will enhance your Internet searching experience. Moreover, it would do it completely for free. Have you heard that the only free cheese is in the mousetrap? This is exactly the case. You may only open a backdoor to potential invaders by using this program. On top of that, Premium Tabs is not even an original product, but just an exact duplicate of the RocketTab application.
Yes, our research team has found that there is no difference between these programs. Like its predecessor, Premium Tabs also names itself as the “top free local search enhancer on the web.” Sounds attractive, does it not? Let us use some logic there. If a product is distributed for free, there should be some way how it could become profitable for its developers. And the answer lies in a single word: advertisements. Even the webpage of the application does not cover the truth and says that “PremiumTabs is supported via text advertising.”
You have already encountered advertisements generated by Premium Tabs. You see them on the top of your search results, no matter which browser you use. Sometimes you can even find those ads relevant. There is no magic in there, as Premium Tabs gathers information on the websites you visit and searches you make. This allows the program to customize advertisement for you, thus increasing the chance that you will not resist the temptation. However, it is in your own interest to refrain from clicking on ads.Premium Tabs screenshot
