    Question possible parasiteware?
    I came across a website that tracks visitor information. One of their tools is a toolbar which gives you information regarding the website you are viewing. If there are any 'deals' for that site, it will also show that on the toolbar. I don't know what it does with the deals information, as I did not download it.

    Details here: tools <dot> compete <dot> com

    I hate installing any toolbars even to verify if they are parasitic. When you check the deal sites do they set an affiliate cookie?

    Another thread on it:

    It's one of those analytics type sites, this one with CJ owned Coupon Mountain as one of it's partners.

    Compete seems doing a better job than Top Moxie to "Maximize Upromise Savings"
    It can't be good for affiliates.
