FoxyDeal

What is FoxyDeal?

FoxyDeal is a potentially unwanted 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 the 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. It is typically installed via a bundled offer within a 3rd-party distribution.

The company promotes it within the bundlers such as OpenCandy as "A free browser add-on which unobtrusively shows users available coupons, rebates, and deals at over 8,000 online shopping sites."
