Can the Comodo Hopsurf be discontinued?

First it was the Ask Toolbar and now this.  :-TD

What do you mean Discontinued?

Do you mean remove it from the CIS install?

Yes, you could say that.

But I think it would be better if Comodo had no toolbar.

To be honest, the issue with Ask toolbar is taken care of, for the most part. HopSurf was created, to let Comodo have originality and to quit the Ask toolbar issue once and for all.

Security researchers and experts cannot see that Comodo is working really hard to get all issues straightened out and better the security software. CIS is one of the top rated security products, and deserves good respect. HopSurf is going to be a great product...no doubt about it.

I LOVE HOPSURF!!!!!

Thanks for hopsurf I found a lot of information including new research on bone growth.

Its an amazing product and we should not get hang up because it comes as a toolbar! Its optional and Its bloody great if you ask me! :)

Okay, it's just my opinion of toolbars in general.

Just curious:
Will the HS toolbar be limited to the CIS installer?

So, I won't see Hopsurf in other Comodo products? (Other than CIS and Hopsurf website).
Example; Comodo System Cleaner is purely CSC and not bundled with HS.

I wouldn't mind if the user when installing hopsurf could choose what search engine they wanted. They could have a few choices, google; yahoo; bing; ask. That way people could once and for all drop the issue.

So HS isn't really a security product?

It's just some fun  ???
