The official homepage is there only for the show, to make users think that they are dealing with a legitimate application if they ever decide to google this browser extension. Yet, just because a program has an official homepage, it does not mean the program is automatically reliable.
Since there is no direct distribution source for this application, it means that it probably enters your computer bundled with freeware. Software packages are very commonly used in adware distribution.
