User reviews
Recent update is malware. Extension used to work great, but after the most recent update it redirects links and feels very much like a virus. Report Abuse!

The developer recently enabled a default setting that causes this extension to open pop-under windows. It seems to be triggered by visiting various shopping sites and the pop-under windows redirect you to other shopping sites.[

As others stated - it worked fine until recently. Now it is allowing popups from various sites. Avoid.
