Qword Browser is yet another Chromium-based web browser that you might want to remove from your computer. It is known to be in existence since 2010 and yet it just does not go away. This browser was and still is classified as a potentially unwanted program that does not offer anything of real value. Furthermore, it is used to gather information about you, which is hardly surprising, since it sort of takes over the search engine. Qword Browser comes from an unreliable software developer, so there are no guaranties that you will receive a reliable application. Please read this description as it contains valuable information that will show what this browser actually is.
In its own words Qword Browser’s developer states that “Qword Corporation is a well-known and professional developer to search engine.” Yes, that is exactly how they put it. Qword Inc. is not exactly a well-known developer. Nevertheless, we have found that this company is located in ShangHai, China. This is not surprising, because Qword Browser is more oriented towards the Asian market. However, while conducting our research we found that this browser is likely to be bundled and put up for download on software sharing websites. We also found that it is still being offered on a website called Software.informer.com. Furthermore, this program has its own dedicated website at Qword.com. It seems that its developers have neglected this webpage over the years as this program can no longer be downloaded from it. The main website cannot be opened, but its subpages are still accessible. Now that you know where this program comes from, let us move on to how it works.
Regardless of where you get this program, because it only has one version, Qword Browser is installed as a separate program, but if you have Google Chrome installed, then it will modify it, and every time you try opening Chrome you will get Qword Browser instead. This browser has several browser extensions. One is called Qword Player and the other is called Video Downloader. It is interesting to note that the aforementioned extensions cannot be found on the Chrome Web Store. However, it seems that Qword Player is not that bad of an extension, because it can actually play video files, so Qword Browser also doubles as a media player, but the extent to how good it is remains unanswered. In any case, Qword Browser’s default search engine is a modified version of Google.com. We think that it has been modified to present promotional links of questionable validity. Therefore, this is one more reason to delete this program, because there is no way of knowing what it is going to promote. We think that the final nail in the coffin for Qword Browser is the fact that it is unstable and is likely to crash quite often.
We hope that you found this information useful. As you can see, Qword Browser is not a program that you can trust. It comes from a shady background and we believe that it was created for web monetization purposes, because its search results are likely to contain promotional links that may be unreliable, and this program collects information about you to tailor the ads. And, as mentioned, this program is unstable and thus likely to crash, so we recommend that you remove Qword Browser and get a better browser.
