The Directionstab.com search engine is a service promoted by a dodgy Web browser add-on. The Web browser extension pushing the Directionstab.com search engine is called Directions Tab, and it is known to promote itself as a useful tool that will provide its users with maps and directions that may come in handy when traveling.
However, the Directions Tab tool fails to mention one crucial detail – it will change your default new tab page with a sponsored site called Directionstab.com. It is important to note that the services provided by the Direction Tab application are freely available online. This utility does not provide its users with any unique features or tools. Instead, the data displayed in the Directions Tab Web browser extension is pulled from services like Google Maps, Mapquest and Bing Maps. Remember that you do not need to install any third-party software to access the data provided by the Direct Tab Web browser add-on. Furthermore, the fact that the Direct Tab add-on replaces your default new tab will not enhance your Web browsing experience in any manner. Instead, it is likely that you may not be getting very accurate search results as this search engine may prioritize sponsored content.
The Directions Tab Web browser extension is classified as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program), and it is best to uninstall it. You can do it manually or with the help of a genuine anti-virus application.
