What is BrowSoee2save?

This program is related to other adware browser extensions created by Web-Picks (InstalleRex), a known adware developer. It is also a variant of the BrowseToSave program just renamed to help confuse users.

Browse2save installs the Savings Apps Browser Add-on, a web browser extension for Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome. The program monitors the web sites a user visits in order to display coupons, deals, discounts, special offers, promotional codes, or sales offered by affiliate stores or other merchants based on the context of the user's web browsing activities. The browser add-on is a self updating downloadable toolbar, or, in some browsers, an extension or add-on, that provides you access to coupons based on a search conducted by the user or that are offered based upon sites you visit or searches you conduct in your browser where the Browser Add-on is installed and is enabled.
