The FilmsPro Search Extension offered by iezbrowsing.com might promise to provide its users with access to a range of services that can help them find movies and TV series they will enjoy watching. While many users are likely to be attracted by this offer, we'd like to let them know that the FilmsPro Search Extension does not offer any revolutionary features and, instead, it simply refers its users to 3rd-party services and websites that contain information regarding recent and upcoming movie releases, movie reviews and other pertinent data.

The installation of the FilmsPro Search Extension also is likely to be accompanied by unexpected changes to the user's browser configuration. Since this add-on is compatible with the Google Chrome only, users with this Web browser are likely to be the only ones experience the minor annoyances that the FilmsPro Search Extension is able to cause. When this software is installed, it will replace the Chrome's default new tab page with a search engine, which also contains links to popular online movie databases such as IMDB.

The search field found on the website that the FilmsPro Search Extension promotes is not an unreliable one – it delivers results via Yahoo so that the quality of the Web searches will not be bad. However, if you do not want to use browser extensions that force you to adapt to an alternative new tab page, then we suggest that you take the required steps to ensure the FilmsPro Search Extension's full removal. The FilmsPro Search Extension program is not harmful so that you could remove it with the help of the Chrome's Extension Manager.
