What is SearchPage Tab?

SearchPage (related to Wajam) is an ad-supported (users may see additional banner and in-text link advertisements) cross web browser plugin for Internet Explorer (BHO) and Firefox/Chrome (plugin) and distributed through various monetization platforms during installation. The browser extension includes various features that will modify the default or custom settings of the browser including the home page, search settings and in some cases will modify Internet Explorer's load time threshold, place a lock file within Firefox to prevent competing software from changing its settings as well as disable the browser's Content Security Policy in order to allow for cross site scripting of the plugin.

What the toolbar does:
- Changes the default search engine in your web browser's built-in search box.
- Changes the default home page of your web browser.
- Adds alternative "page not found" functionality.
- Enable search from the address bar of your web browser.
- Allows software updates of the application once a new version is released.

As expressed in the SearchPage.com Terms of Service:
"By downloading the SearchPage Tab Application, you understand and expressly agree that: The SearchPage Tab Application will try to protect you against unwanted applications that would try to interfere with its features and will ask you to confirm any changes before applying them. For example, if you set your homepage to SearchPage and another application tries to change it, the SearchPage Tab Application will notify you of such change and request your permission before proceeding with the change."

It's nothing more that an adware browser hijacker.
