    "This product is, in effect, a virus. DO NOT DOWNLOAD!"

    July 10, 2012  |   By Montythesup

    Pros

    The virus-like nature of this software was found to be so abusive that firefox changed its security policy. It used to be possible for a program to install elements of itself into your browser without your permission. This software total takeover of all your browser was so slimy and its clever choice to deactivate any uninstall button so unethical that this option has been removed by mozillia.

    Cons

    See above, the Babaylon company holds you in contempt. Under no circumstances should you download this product or any other they make.

    Summary

    The editors at cnet gave it a great rating because babylon is the site sponsor. This toolbar automatically instals itself with any download.com products. Boycott cnet until they discontinue any and all business relationships with babylon. If you become the victim of the software (it has no users, only victims) then say so on the forum or blog of your choice. They do not deserve to be in business.
