What is Browse Beyond?

The Browse Beyond (or Browsebeyond) browser extension is developed by Super Web LLC and claims to display website ratings and enable multiple website search capabilities whilst surfing the Internet. This software is compatible with Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Computer users who have installed this browser plugin should be aware that it is categorized as adware and causes unwanted ads within search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo. Furthermore, it generates banner, text link, transitional, interstitial, and full page ads. Browse Beyond also tracks users' Internet browsing habits (recording the IP address, unique identifier number, operating system, browser information, URLs visited, pages viewed, search queries entered, other software and hardware information), and may cause serious privacy issues.

This browser plugin often installs on users' Internet browsers without their consent together with free software downloaded from the Internet. Note that Super Web LLC releases identical browser add-ons under different names in order to avoid detection by legitimate antivirus and anti-spyware programs. If you observe "Browse Beyond Ads", "Browse Beyond Deals", or "Powered by Browse Beyond" advertisements within various websites whilst browsing the Internet, your computer is infected with adware.

This browser add-on is identical to other adware developed by Super Web LLC including, for example, SwiftBrowse, Xaven, and Illoxum amongst many others. 'Download clients' are a common source of these potentially unwanted applications, which manage the download process of free software and use deceptive tactics to trick Internet users into installing 'bundled' free browser add-ons. Computer users who wish to avoid installation of such adware should be attentive when downloading free software - click on the 'decline' button if any installation of free browser extensions are offered. If you observe unwanted ads generated by Browse Beyond, use the removal guide provided to eliminate this adware from your computer.
