Is Browzar Adware?

September 2, 2006 at 8:11 pm 1 comment

Browzar's logoBrowzar describes itself as a useful application that allows end users to search and surf the Internet without leaving any visible trace on the computer they are using. The site goes on to say, “Browzar is free, it only takes seconds to download and you don’t even need to install it, so you can download Browzar time and time again, whenever and wherever you need it to protect your privacy.” Despite initially receiving a large amount of positive attention from several popular media sources including BBC, CNET, Slashdot and Digg a growing amount of negative speculation has started to surface. The popular weblog TechCrunch did a great job sharing both sides of the story and at the end leaves it up to the end user to decide (hopefully after conducting some proper due diligence) whether or not to install their application.
