What is RecordChecker?

From the publisher: "Record Checker works by installing a browser extension in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome. In order to keep Record Checker free, we've partnered with high-quality ad providers and you may see additional ads when Record Checker is installed. We do not allow any really annoying ads, sexual content, or intrusive media; we've only partnered with high-quality ad providers to deliver the best user experience possible, while also trying to help with some of our costs to keep Record Checker free.

In some cases, we may display product offers during your installation process. Of course, you will have the ability to accept or pass on these offers. We try our very best to make sure any product offering follows best practices and actually provides something of value to you. These offers make it more efficient to search the web by providing you with multiple places to search from (an additional search field, your home page or via opening a new browser tab). Included with these toolbars are typically widgets that provide new ways to access your favorite websites, social networking platforms and news sources. They also may offer general utility widgets like getting real-time weather data and streaming your radio station of choice."
