The Movie Goat Default Search is a browser extension that claims to provide users with relevant and up-to-date video content that will make their Web browsing sessions a bit more entertaining and enjoyable. However, it is important to note that the extension does this by asking for the users’ permission to change their browser’s default search engine to Moviegoat.com, a page that hosts a small search field, and a large number of videos that are arranged into various categories. Moviegoat.com does not host any of these videos, and they are simply embedded in the page from 3rd-party video hosting services like YouTube, DailyMotion, etc. In addition to this, the videos don’t appear to be tailored to the user’s interests so that it is questionable whether the Movie Goat Default Search’s promise to provide relevant videos is truthful.
Having the Movie Goat Default Search changing your browser’s settings also might not be a good thing since the search feature hosted on Moviegoat.com only searches for video clips featured on the page. However, the installation of the extension prompts to include Feed.moviegoat.com as a search option, and this sub-domain appears to lead to the Yahoo Search.
Even if you are looking for fresh and entertaining video content, the Movie Goat Default Search is probably not the best utility to use for this purpose since it may apply unwanted changes to your Web browser’s settings. Even if you find the content It provides interesting, you should just visit Moviegoat.com instead of opting to use an extension that modifies your settings just like a browser hijacker. The removal of the Movie Goat Default Search is not mandatory, but it is strongly recommended if you are not satisfied with the extension’s features.
