Type: Browser Hijackers is a low-quality search engine that may be set as a Web browser's default new tab page by an extension that goes by the name Allinchrome New Tab. As the name suggests, this extension is only compatible with Google Chrome, so users who use this Web browser are more likely to see as their default new tab page, even though they may not remember allowing this change.

The search engine is not reliable, and the results it delivers may not be up to par with the results that reputable search aggregators like Yahoo, Bing and Google may provide. The good news is that neither the extension nor the search engine it promotes are classified as unsafe. Neither of them exposes users to threatening content, and there haven't been any reports of them being associated with suspicious content or software.

The Allinchrome New Tab extension may be promoted as a useful search utility that enhances the user's ability to find relevant content online, as well as to discover the most convenient and relevant search results. However, the installation of this extension requires the users to allow the software to set as their default new tab page, therefore forcing them to use a 3rd-party search engine with a questionable reputation. If you have the Allinchrome New Tab extension installed, and you don't want to continue using its services, as well as the new tab page, then you should remove the troubling software as soon as possible. The manual removal of and the Allinchrome New Tab extension can be completed via the list of installed Google Chrome extensions. If you suspect that this will not work for you, then the even easier method is to use an anti-malware scanner to scan and clean your computer from Potentially Unwanted Programs like the Allinchrome New Tab extension.
