Visicom Media today announced the release of the new version of its Toolbar Cleaner utility. In addition to removing toolbars and Browser Helper Objects (BHOs) from Internet Explorer and Firefox, as well as apps from Google Chrome, the newest release can now remove add-ons and plug-ins from the Firefox browser.
Firefox add-ons have become popular because they allow users to customize their browsers with added functionality, while plug-ins are small bits of third-party software, like the Adobe Flash Player. However, having too many add-ons and outdated plug-ins can severely impair browsing performance. With Toolbar Cleaner, users can ensure a better browsing experience by improving performance and reliability.
Toolbar Cleaner removes more than 250,000 unwanted toolbars, apps, add-ons, and plug-ins per month. Java and Adobe BHOs, the Conduit Engine, and the Ask Toolbar are among the top toolbars and BHOs removed from browsers.
Main features of the new release include the following:
- Removal of Firefox add-ons and plug-ins (Firefox 5 supported)
- Cleaning of the Windows start-up folders to remove unwanted applications that load when the computer boots up
- Support of Internet Explorer in 64-bit mode
Toolbar Cleaner is totally free and can be downloaded from toolbarcleaner.com
Toolbar Cleaner is the first free tool to specifically address toolbar cleanup for each browser and to allow users to keep only the toolbars and apps they really need. By distributing Toolbar Cleaner free of charge, Visicom Media hopes to keep the toolbar and app market user friendly.
