It can be added to all those popular web browsers, such as Safari, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and IE. Although it seems to be a useful program that can help you look for useful online resources, it is indeed an unwanted program that can do nothing but to display video ads, text ads or banner ads on your machine. Most users complain that those ads from Cantataweb pop up out of nowhere when they surf the web.

However, this adware can invade your privacy, as it is responsible for collecting your search query as well as browsing history.
