Sometimes, it is difficult to determine a program’s developer. However, in this case, Search.newtabtvsearch.com’s website states that its developer is Imali Media Ltd, a largely unknown software developer. However, this search engine is not its first release. As far as we know, this developer has also created several clone search engines in the past. The list includes Search.searchinsocial.com and a few others. Usually, this developer sets up a promotional and download website to its browser extensions. So you might get Search.newtabtvsearch.com from its dedicated website called Newtabtv.com. It downloads the extension for Firefox directly, while for Google Chrome it redirects you to the Chrome Web Store. Yes, that store features this extension, which is a pity. Hopefully, it will be removed from it soon, because, although this search engine is not malicious it is still somewhat unreliable. Furthermore, this search engine’s browser extension is known to be promoted via adware-generated advertisements and pop-ups.
