What is Zoompic?

Zoompic is an ad-supported browser extension that may deliver advertisements in the form of coupons, affiliate links, price-comparisons, display media and other links through a number of functions including those based on the the content of any web page the user is visiting, plug-ins, add-ons, or the web browser itself.

The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. In the Mozilla Firefox browser, it will add an add-on.
