How does QuotationCafe act?

If you pay no attention to the installation process, as soon as the toolbar is installed your home page is set as home.mywebsearch.com. This search engine may seem attractive because of the provided links to Gmail, Yahoo, Facebook, YouTube, Amazon, Twitter, Wikipedia, MSN, Pinterest, eBay, and Instagram. However, once you enter a keyword into the search bar and click Search, you should immediately notice that you are provided with sponsored results before any reliable information. Therefore, it is not recommended that you trust this particular search engine. The Privacy Policy of the application states that you may also be exposed to third-party ads when using the search engine:

We use third-party companies to serve advertisements when you visit the Site. […] In addition, we may allow third-parties, including our authorized service providers, IAC companies, advertising companies, and ad networks, to display advertisements or place ad tags or beacons on the Site.

The toolbar itself divide quick-access links through such categories as Daily Quote, More Quotes, and Paradise Photos. It is stated that these links can provide you with one-click access to daily motivational and inspiring quotes. Additionally, you are provided with links to Facebook, Horoscopes and Weather. Do you find these services beneficial? In reality, there are plenty of other more reliable and useful browser plugins, which is why you may want to delete QuotationCafe without further delay.
