In today’s rapidly expanding online world, we are constantly bombarded with advertisements when using the Internet. Whether you are checking email, researching information, browsing through your social network or just surfing the web, advertisers are coming up with new ways to capture your business with flashy ads and popups.

There are many other features for parents, teachers and students, which can be found here.
It will be interesting to see how the program plays out and if any other search engines such as Google or Yahoo will jump on the bandwagon.
