Kittens New Tab

Posted: February 13, 2019

The Kittens New Tab has been identified as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) whose installation may seem like a cool idea since it claims to provide its users with random photos of cute cats whenever they use their Web browser’s new tab page. However, what some users of the Kittens New Tab might not know is that by accepting to install this utility, they also permit it to modify their Web browser’s configuration by introducing an alternative new tab page. While this change should not be considered to be a major problem, it might have a slightly adverse impact on the user’s Web browsing experience.

The users of the Kittens New Tab might have their default new tab page replaced by Searchpage.com. This website is safe to use, and it does provide reliable search results. However, it certainly cannot offer the same functionality and features as other popular new tab pages like Google, Bing, Yahoo or DuckDuckGo. If you do not wish to have 3rd-party browser add-ons tampering with your browser’s configuration, then we suggest that you take care of the Kittens New Tab’s removal. This task can be done not just manually, but also with the help of a suitable PC security tool.
