Mustang Browser is a recently released web browser that is slowly but surely gaining popularity, because it is featured on the most popular freeware sharing websites. However, users who download it do not realize that it is a potentially unwanted program that ought to be removed. It is not malicious per se, but, when you install this browser, you will also get an extension called MustangDeals, which is supposed to be a shopping assistant. However, because MustangDeals is based on the SuperFish engine, it might display third-party advertisements that you should avoid clicking due to their unreliable nature.
Mustang Browser has been created by a software developer called Rafo Technology Inc, which also developed DealWifi. This browser is advertised as an application that offers “a better browsing experience.” However, we do not see anything that Google Chrome could not do better. There is a new trend of releasing unreliable browsers based on Google’s Chromium platform, and Mustang Browser seems to be one such browser. We also recommend that you keep away from such browsers as Internet Quick Access, Chromatic browser, and 1stBrowser, because they are also potentially unwanted programs with their own unique drawbacks.
At any rate, Mustang Browser can be downloaded from its own dedicated website at Mustang-browser.com. On top of that, it is also featured on websites, such as Softonic.com, Cnet.com, Softpedia.com, Findmysoft.com, and a few others. With so many websites hosting its download, it is no surprise that it is gaining popularity. However, this browser is not exactly a good choice. Therefore, we suggest finding an alternative.
The reason why we suggest getting another browser is that is comes with the MustangDeals browser extension that has been based on the Superfish engine. Superfish is an advertising company that develops various adware programs. The company is based in Palo Alto, California, but was founded in Israel. Even the US Department of Homeland Security advised uninstalling its software, because it makes computers vulnerable to serious cyber attacks, including interception of passwords and sensitive information theft. Superfish adware is known to inject advertisements into the results from Internet search engines, and its business model is based on receiving affiliate fees on each sale.
As you can see, Mustang Browser is associated with an infamous advertising company that creates unreliable software that you should remove, so it makes this particular browser all the more unreliable. Yet it is advertised as safe and that it blocks all kinds of malicious plug-ins and browser hijackers. It is also said that it is fast and can load all types of pages in less than 2 seconds. However, all popular browsers can to that, and, if you have a slow Internet connection, this browser will not improve anything. It is also claimed that it is stable. This may be true, yet stating that your application does not crash is kind of stupid, as if that is some kind of a feature that cannot be found anywhere else.
We hope that this article has shed some light on Mustang Browser. It works as a web browser should. However, since it has that Superfish-based extension that can display advertisements, we deem this browser unreliable, because it might be vulnerable to cyber attacks. So, we recommend that you find yourself an alternative browser. If you liked Mustang Browser, then you should definitely try Google Chrome. It is the original browser that contains none of the undesirable features that Mustang Browser has. So feel free to remove Mustang Browser and enjoy a safe, ad-free browsing experience.
