What is Homepage.re

This article is devoted to Homepage.re browser hijacker, which is among the potentially unwanted programs. Of course, at first glance, it looks like a completely legitimate and quite useful search engine. Moreover, the developers claim that Homepage.re enhances the browsing experience and has a bunch of useful features, for example, buttons for quick access to popular services, popular sites, social networks and so on. However, it later turns out that Homepage.re is a very annoying malware. After penetration, this changes the browser settings and sets https://homepage.re/ as the default homepage. The hijacker collects private data about the user and transfers it to third parties. Homepage.re may result in other potentially unwanted programs. All in all, this is a very annoying malware. We highly recommend that you review our Homepage.re removal guidelines to get rid of this.


How Homepage.re gets on your PC?

Homepage.re, like other browser hijackers, comes without the consent of the user, most often, complete with free downloads from the Internet. For example, a user downloads a program, but receives not just a program, but an installation package that contains unwanted elements and components. You need to monitor the installation process by choosing its advanced type to secure your computer. Use special browser extensions that block malicious links. If Homepage.re has already penetrated your computer, then delete it using our recommendations.

  1. I got a tutorial of mounting iso from wonderfox. On Windows 10/8.1/8, Windows has the built-in ability to mount both ISO and image files. You have three options for windows mount ISO. You can:
    – Double-click an ISO file to mount it, but if your ISO file is already associated with other software, try another two options.
    – Right-click an ISO file and select the “Mount” option.
    – Select the file in File Explorer and click the “Mount” button under the “Disk Image Tools” tab on the ribbon.

  2. Single job extensions are useless and ultimately clutter. The full screen/page capture tool. That is all it does… nothing more. I’d rather use, “”Nimbus Screenshot & Screen Video Recorder””, which not only captures a full screen/page, it can capture what we see, what we select and it can record tab or desktop into webm format. Plus it has on screen editing tools in both screenshot and video record modes. Tools to add text, shapes, various arrows, blur out text and more. Much like how news reporters on TV add arrows to live traffic reports is what the tools in video mode can do.

    Panda 5, seems harmless to those who are oblivious to how it works and its requirements. It actually opens/load all sites into memory at once which allows it quick access to those pinned sites which means it takes 2-16+ Gigabytes of ram just by running that extension. Which means you need to be running Chrome 64b and not the 32b version, and have a minimum of 6+ RAM.

    I prefer FVD Speed Dial instead. It doesn’t load all the pinned sites. It simply is a visual bookmarking tool which becomes your new homepage and has internal tabs which allow us to categorize a set of addresses. It also makes a screen cap of the site to be used as the thumb which can vary in size from 150×94 to 364×228. But best of all, it can export all dials and settings to a text file so should you need to re-installing Chrome, you can easily get back all your dials and settings by loading in the text file. I have 296 dials across 12 tabs.

    Hover Zoom (or Hover Zoom+ (different author)) is no longer the leading mouse over zoom extension because they couldn’t get around the Chrome 3rd party download rules which disabled 3rd party download ability. Hover Zoom and Hover Zoom+ both allowed us to save the zoomed images by pressing a key. I switched over to Imagus which got around it somehow and not only zooms but allows me to save them again.

    As for uBlock Origins, I too use it but not for the reason you listed. It has its failures but at least the author doesn’t bend to letting ads slip through. The author of uBlock Origins is the original author of uBlock (Raymond Hill), but his partners wanted to follow the footsteps of Ad Block and allow some ads. So he left and created uBlock Origins to continue his vision. The fail part is uBO doesn’t always block elements on page reload and often items annoying visual items I select as blocked… on reload will reload again. But the plus is the footprint is smaller than Adblock Plus and uBlock.

  3. Really great suggestions and video! Thank you.
    Is there an extension while you are viewing youtube comments from the comments section area, the youtube post is still playing by the side of Chrome browser instead of the very top?
    Thank you for your help in advance.

  4. My only bone I have to pick with you is your recommendation for TINYEYE, this extension sucks big time 99% of the time it doesn’t identify pictures I’ve sent to it and no way does this extension beat Google Images. Google Images identifies more pictures than Tinyeye hands down. I have more success with Google Images.

  5. Thanks for doing the research on these extensions and presenting them so clearly. I’m not a fan of Chrome, but Wikiwand and Dark Reader could be useful for me. By the way, do you have any recommendations on how to save comments from YouTube that extend more than a screen? From recipes to DIY to politics, I occasionally would like to save a long comment. I’ve been making do with the scroll capture feature on my Samsung phone but would like the comment as text, not an image. Do you know of any Android app that would provide this functionality? Thanks.
