What is Cool Browser

Cool Browser by Goobzo Ltd is another ad-supported browser developed on Chromium. From the first view, it looks like Google Chrome and that is its main trick. When users start seeing ads or search redirects they think they have adware installed in Chrome, when in fact, the whole browser is replaced. Cool Browser does not remove Google Chrome, but replaces its icons on the desktop and taskbar. It also has pre-installed search engine, which is different from google.com. In some cases Cool Browser can install add-ons in Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer. In this article we walk you through all the problems and show how to remove Cool Browser from computer.
