First, we ought to talk about where Burst Search comes from. According to our specialists, the application has an official website. Also, at the moment of writing, it is still offered on the Google Chrome Web Store page even though many users ask to remove it from the platform in their reviews. Some say that they have no idea how it appeared on their computers as well as how to remove the extension.

Meaning, such applications can appear on your system if you are not attentive enough when you install software or if you click pop-ups or ads without finding more about their offered content.

Currently, Burst Search seems to be working only with the Google Chrome browser. Thus, it is doubtful that you could encounter it if you use Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Edge. The application may ask for permission to “Change your search settings to: find.burstsearch.com.” Meaning, the extension might replace your default search engine with a website called find.burstsearch.com. It is a search website that provides a search box and shows both time and date. After inserting a keyword into the site’s search box, we got redirected to search.yahoo.com that displayed search results. Some users who reviewed the application on the Chrome Web Store page say that they got redirected to the Bing search engine, which means the extension’s website might redirect to different search engines. It also means that it might not have the abilities to gather and display search results as it uses other search engines to complete these tasks. If you expected something different from this application and are disappointed in it, you could get rid of Burst Search.
