!!!!REDIRECTS YOUR GOOGLE SEARCHES!!!! DO NOT INSTALL!!!!!

This is a MALWARE version of otherwise good add-on available in Chrome store. It redirects to the advertising web site every few minutes when opening a new tab.

MALWARE!!! The addon will redirect search results (google in my case, I am sure it affects every engine) to a search engine called "mynewsearch.net" These developers are evil!
