What is Groovorio?

Groovorio is an web browser advertisement extension that delivers ads to the user's web browser. Ads are in the form of traditional banners as well as context-hyper links. Ads delivered are injected on any web page the software decides to include it on and not just those affiliated with the software or its affiliates.
