First, it helps you more easily use our search engine, Duck Duck Go. For info about Duck Duck Go, see http://duckduckgo.com/about.html
Second, our toolbar saves you from 38 Million useless Web sites! Useless Web sites are sites with nothing but ads. If you're like most people, you've been to many of them from either search results or by slightly mistyping Web addresses, e.g. yotube.com.
At best, these sites are a complete waste of time. At worst, they involve pop-ups, scams, and who really knows what else? Anyway, our toolbar saves you from them. Check out the preview picture for an example.
Note: there is an FAQ on our add-on's homepage.
