The My Daily Verse XP is a browser add-on by Polarity Technologies LTD, and it can be downloaded from both the Chrome Store and the official download page of the publisher. The purpose of this extension is to supply Chrome users with a steady supply of bible quotes and verses that they will see whenever they open their new tab page. While this might appear to be a great feature that can get you familiar with the bible, you should know that the installation of the My Daily Verse XP is only possible if you authorize the add-on to replace the new tab page you use. Changes of this sort are not harmful, but they are likely to promote 3rd-party websites with questionable credibility and reputation. The website that this add-on promotes is found at http://Search.mydailyversexp.com, and it appears to be working flawlessly at the moment. The search feature redirects users to the Yahoo Search, therefore providing them with credible results.

In addition to the search feature and bible verses, the users of the My Daily Verse XP's new tab page also will see a weather and news toolbar accompanied by a collection of links to websites related to online bible communities.

If you do not mind the changes that the My Daily Verse XP brings, then you are welcome to continue using this program and the website it promotes. However, if you are unhappy with the new tab page that the My Daily Verse XP brought, then we advise you to remove this Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) immediately. You can accomplish this either manually or with the use of a PC security scanner.
