What is Color My Googl?

The Color My Google web browser add-in by AugustinDuval is designed to allow users to change the color of the Google search pages. It uses the Crossrider Toolbar platform and utilizes a download installer that bundles additional software. It is an adware application that runs in the web browser as a toolbar and web extension.

- Changing the browser's search provider, built-in search box as well as the address bar.
