    Well,

    [Hey what kind of form hits the post comments button when you just hit return in the subject line???]

    First, they try to liken this to Gator, which sounds like a large stretch, since Gator was/is installed secretively when installing some other product, and then basically hijacked your web browser to show ads it was paid to show you, vs. the ads that the web-site's advertisers paid to show you.

    Second, don't expect this for MacOS X at any time. These types of things tend to be windows only.

    Another reason not to expect it for the Mac is that it's already built into the OS, via content indexing and the search feature in the Finder.
