Fusion Browser’s website greets its visitors with a bold and intriguing statement “Unleash the web with the power of Fusion!” However, you should remove this browser, because it does not offer anything unique. Moreover, after testing this browser we have come to the conclusion that it is nothing more than a potentially unwanted program that is set to make money for its developers. It does this by displaying commercial advertisements inside its search results. Also, this browser contains adware programs by default; however, they are subject to the version of this browser. In this article, we will provide you with the most relevant information that will help you get a better understanding of what you are dealing with, because even though this application is not malicious, its ads can be.
As mentioned, this browser has two versions. These versions come down to how they are distributed and feature different extensions accordingly. Beyond the field of extensions, the two versions are practically the same. While conducting our research we have found that Fusion Browser is currently being distributed using a dedicated download website and software bundles. Its website at Getfusionbrowser.com features a version that includes legitimate browser extensions, such as Enable Netflix, Facebook Messenger Notifications, Haiku, Honey, Rain Alarm Extension, Unlimited Free VPN – Hola, and World weather online. However, the bundles version is known to come with GeniusBox, RightCoupon that are considered malicious as they are bound to show unreliable advertisements. The bundled version may be hidden from plain sight inside a bundle’s setup, but you can remove it by opting for custom installation settings and unchecking its respective checkbox. Now let us talk about how this browser works.
From a design standpoint, Fusion Browser has a unique and yet not a very practical design. It is aesthetically very similar to Google Chrome once fully extended and, in fact, it is based on Google’s Chromium platform. However, unlike a traditional browser that has to be launched in order to access the Internet, this browser works as a desktop-based toolbar. Thus, this browser has a drop-down menu that reveals the browser window. We have found that its search queries are redirected to Trovi.com before being processed by Bing.com. Trovi.com is an unreliable search engine that is known to come with Conduit toolbars and Search Protect.
The fact of the matter is that the content promoted by Fusion Browser and its accompanying extensions can be unreliable. As stated in this program’s EULA, “Some components of the Software may be supported by advertising revenue and may display advertisements and promotions. These advertisements may be targeted to the content of information stored by or through the Software, queries made through the Software or other information.” However, the developers of this application shed all responsibility for the consequences that may occur as a result of using this software as it was intended. Therefore, we strongly recommend removing this program.
Now, Uninstalling Fusion Browser is not a difficult thing to do. However, we are aware that some users might have insufficient knowledge to achieve this. Therefore, we have included a manual removal guide at the bottom of this article. As mentioned, this program is not malicious but it can contain malicious adware-type browser extensions that can compromise your computer’s security. So do not hesitate to get rid of this browser right now.
