RE: Re: [bod] A web search tool that costs you nothing and generates donations to AMSAT



Google has a similar search feature that pays for people that click on the ads
that are displayed at the top of the search results screen.  It doesn't
require any additional software (read that: a safer option), it works with all
browsers and OS types (read that: a compatible option), and offers a service
to everyone not just in the know about the download (read that: an option that
serves all).

As a Information Security professional, I cringe at the thought of people
downloading a "toolbar" for any purpose.  Many are spyware, trojan horses, or
just plain bad programs that bog down the computer.  This may or may not be
true for the Goodsearch toolbar but I, personally, am staying away.

Just my 2 cents worth...

73s,
