You may want to know that computer security researchers classify the Listen To The Radio Now Extension as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP). The Listen To The Radio Now Extension is programmed to change the new tab to hxxp://search[.]/?&ap=nocache&i_id=radio_1.1&page=browseraction& that is an URL, which triggers a browser redirect to ,hxxp://search[.]/?&ap=nocache&cid=mnaimnpepifhhfolncihkcdafimdgeeoi_id=radio_1.1&page=newtab&. The aforementioned page is bugged, and browsers like Google Chrome are unable to load content from it. A quick view would let you notice that the initial link is configured inappropriately. The Listen To The Radio Now Extension is seen to manifest as an icon in the navigation panel. Clicking on the Listen To The Radio Now Extension icon does not seem to open a radio player, a new tab and a drop-down menu as you might expect it would. Instead, the Listen To The Radio Now Extension loads hxxp://search[.]/?&ap=nocache&i_id=radio_1.1&page=browseraction& and redirects the user to hxxp://search[.]/?&ap=nocache&cid=mnaimnpepifhhfolncihkcdafimdgeeoi_id=radio_1.1&page=newtab&. Judging by the reputation of Polarity, they may have intended to release a modified version of the HD Radio Player (Search.searchhighdrp.com) or the Free Live Radio New Tab Search extension (Query.hfreeliveradio.co). The company is known to publish revamped copies of earlier software products, redirect users to Yahoo, collect browsing history records and facilitate behavioral marketing. You might be willing to try out the HD Radio Player from Polarity, but you should take into consideration the associated EULA, Terms of Use and Privacy Policy first.
