What is BrowseIgnite?
BrowseIgnite is an ad-supported program that presents you with advertisements labeled ‘Ads by BrowseIgnite’. The application is promoted as a browser plug-in that will help you search for information faster. It has an official website where the program is described using general phrases like “browser smarter”, “browse better”, and so on. It is supposed to allow you highlight a text and use it as a search term or post it on a social networking website.
Although there is a download button on the page, it does not seem to be working. That means that the program travels bundled with free software which is always a bad sign. We recommend that you remove the adware from your system and thus get rid of Ads by BrowseIgnite.
