FlightSearch Toolbar is exactly what its name says — it is a toolbar, but not a particularly good one. Therefore, it is recommended that you remove it. We have deemed this toolbar unreliable, because it is set to promote a questionable search engine that may include shady ads in its search results. In addition, this toolbar features links to legitimate websites, but other than that it does not offer anything useful. So we invite you to read this short description and come to your own conclusions. In our opinion the toolbar itself is harmless, but its promoted search engine should not be trusted and removed.
Toolbars such as this one are in ample supply, because they are developed by Mindspark Interactive Network which is known to be very efficient at releasing junk applications. Previously, this developer released SendFilesFree Toolbar, GasGlance Toolbar, and 100sOfRecipes Toolbar, among other toolbars. This developer always creates a dedicated download website for each of its programs. In the case of FlightSearch Toolbar, it is featured on a website called Free.flightsearchapp.com. Also, this toolbar’s website may be promoted via adware applications. Furthermore, we think that like its predecessors, FlightSearch Toolbar should come bundled with other shady software.
Now let us describe this toolbar’s functionality. Starting from the left side, this toolbar features a search box that uses a custom Ask.com search engine. The Find Updates tab is a flight finder developed Mindspark itself. And, as expected, the finder does not work. This function is the only unique feature on this toolbar, because the rest of them are just links to third-party websites. So the Find Directions tab features links to Airportterminalmaps.com, and various online maps provided by Google, Bing, and others. The Convert Time Zones tab contains links to websites, such as Everytimezone.com. Another tab is a simple To Do List, and the last one is a link to everyone’s favorite social networking website — Facebook.
Before you install FlightSearch Toolbar to your browser the setup should ask whether you want the custom Ask.com to become your browser’s homepage and search provider. If you do not choose to opt out, then the changes will be made by default. The problem with this search engine is that Mindspark may include promotional links on its main page and its search results. Mindspark does not hesitate to promote shady websites as long as they pay. So you might be exposing your computer to malicious content.
We hope that you found this information of some use. As you can see, FlightSearch Toolbar is considered unreliable, because it comes from a shady background — a company that is known to develop borderline legitimate software. This program provides hardly useful functions as a cover, because its main purpose is to promote a customized Ask.com search engine that Mindspark tweaked in order to include its promotional links and ads. As mentioned, its promotions do not come from the most reliable of sources. Therefore, if you want to be on the safe side, you should delete FlightSearch Toolbar using our removal instructions.
