Search Dimension Description

Search Dimension is a Web browser extension whose installation may lead to potentially unwanted changes to your Web browser's default settings. Users who opt to install this extension might be required to authorize it to modify their default new tab page to – a domain used to host a simple search page that has a customizable background, as well as a handy weather widget that detects the user's current location and displays the weather forecast automatically.

The good news is that, while browser extensions of this sort may often promote dysfunctional websites, the situation with Search Dimension is different, and this software works as expected. In fact, some users might find the Search Dimension's features to be an enhancement to their Web browsing experience since the search page allows to switch between Google, Yahoo and Bing's results quickly. What is interesting about Search Dimension is what it claims to offer – according to its official download page, Search Dimension should provide users with a private way to search the Web, without logging their search queries and using this data for marketing purposes. However, it is not clear how well Search Dimension disguises this data, and users might want to think twice whether it is worth to use a browser extension that forces them to use a 3rd-party search page that is not very reputable.

Although Search Dimension works fine, for now, there's no guarantee that this will not change in the future. It is not uncommon for unpopular search engines like these to monetize their traffic by displaying advertisements on the search results page, therefore making the experience of their visitors worse than usual. If you have Search Dimension installed, and you don't wish to use this software or the page it promotes, then it is a good idea to take the required action to uninstall Search Dimension. Since it is always installed as a browser extension, it can be eliminated by uninstalling it from your Web browser's addon manager.
