What is Deal Slider?
Deal Slider is an adware style application that runs in the web browser as a toolbar and web extension. The web extension is primarily designed to take control of the user's browser in order to modify the search provider and redirect web searches to what ever search engine partner the publisher has a revenue relationship with. In doing so, the toolbar performs a number of behaviors in order to maximize the potential of a user to click on sponsored advertising through search. This includes but not limited to:
"You may also see relevant coupons, deal and special offers when the Plugin recognizes the website you are visiting as an eligible site for our programs. For example, when you visit the websites of certain merchants or International Web Services partners, you may get an alert that you can click on to see specific coupons, deals and offers, or you may see a slider visible in the top right-hand portion of your browser displaying various offers that we hope will be of interest to you.
The sponsored links may sometimes appear as "in-text" advertising, which is a term we use for a feature of the Plugin that makes advertising links appear when you hover your cursor over certain words and phrases on a website you are visiting. We try to make the links relevant to these bits of text. (The website itself has nothing to do with the links or the related advertising content.) Sponsored links may also be displayed in response to keyword searches you enter through Google, Bing and other search engines."
