It does not matter which browser you use – Oneindian.net can affect all main browsers including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Actually, at lot of websites employ such practice, and it is not a bad thing as long as you can trust a particular website, but the problem is that Oneindian.net cannot be trusted.

Such shady search engines are often employed by third parties to collect data on unsuspecting users, and later on it could be used for various marketing schemes.
