The filmsZone Home is a browser add-on, which is only compatible with Google Chrome. Users might think it is a good choice to install the filmsZone Home because the extension promises to grant them access to various online movie streams, databases, trailers, reviews, and other data that can help them pick and watch their next movie. However, the usefulness of the filmsZone Home is not as great as its description claims, and one of the reasons for this is the fact that it does not host any of the content it is meant to provide. Instead, it simply acts as a gateway, which refers users to 3rd-party services and websites specialized in creating and distributing movie reviews, trailers, recommendations and even streams.

The only visible change that the users of the filmsZone Home will notice is that this extension will replace their new tab page with an alternative website that is not as credible as some of the commonly used new tab pages like Google, Yahoo, Bing and others. The new tab page, which the filmsZone Home promotes, uses Chrome's bookmarks to create a collection of the user's favorite websites, and also features a search feature that delivers results via the Yahoo Search.

While the filmsZone Home new tab page is not suspicious, we are aware that most people would rather use a credible new tab site like Google, instead of the lesser known site that the filmsZone Home promotes. If you have added the filmsZone Home to your web browser recently and you are not happy with the changes it brought, then we suggest that you take care of its removal by using a credible PC security scanner.
