What is FlightSearch Toolbar?
FlightSearch Toolbar is a useless browser toolbar that you ought to remove. It is useless, because it does not improve your browsing experience in any way. It features a custom search engine based on Ask.com. However, this search engine differs greatly from the original search engine as it likely to contain promotional links inside its search results. This search engine is set as the default homepage and search engine after you install this toolbar. If you installed this toolbar accidentally and you do not know how to delete it from your browser, then please refer to the removal guide located below. However, we recommend that you read this short description to know exactly why FlightSearch Toolbar is useless.
What does FlightSearch Toolbar do?
This toolbar features a search box and four tabs each with its own function. The search box works as expected. It is included so that you could have an at-hand search box. However, all of it supported browsers have a dedicated search box as well, so this one is rather pointless, because it duplicates the function that is already built into the browsers. The first of its four tabs is called Find Updates. In a nutshell it is a flight finder and it should present flight-related information, but there is nothing we can say about it, because it outright does not work. The second tab is called Find Directions and it is just a list of maps provided by Google, Bing and two others. The third tab called Convert Time Zones is again a collect of links dedicated to helping you manage time. The fourth tab is just a simple To-do List. The bottom line is however, that you can bookmark these websites without having to install this toolbar.
We are of the opinion that helping you is not what FlightSearch Toolbar is dedicated to. The functions described above come as an afterthought, because this toolbar is actually dedicated to promoting the customized Ask.com-based search engine called Home.tb.ask.com that is automatically set as your browser’s homepage after you install this toolbar. This search engine features third-party advertisements on its main page and it includes promotional links inside its search results. Thus, this toolbar’s developers profit from web monetization.
Where does FlightSearch Toolbar come from?
FlightSearch is a product of Mindspark Interactive Network Inc. This software developer is known for its bad toolbars, such as this one. In fact, it releases the same toolbar over and over again after making cosmetic changes, such as the name and the functionality of its tabs. This developer’s previous releases include GasGlance Toolbar, SMSFromBrowser Toolbar, and FreeRadioCast Toolbar. And like its counter parts, FlightSearch Toolbar is distributed using software bundles and a dedicated download website (in this case it is Free.flightsearchapp.com).
