Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
A study by the browser development agency found that updates to major browsers are released very often. The typical frequency is approximately one new browser version per two months. It also found that there is a tendency for the new releases of browsers to become more frequent over time. For example, the study showed that 2 years ago a new browser version was released just once every 6 months on average. Today, new versions of popular browsers such as Chrome are released every 6 weeks. The net result is an extra development and tech burden for cash back companies that monetize through browser add-ons. With each browser update, the cash back company is forced back to the drawing board to make changes to their add-on to ensure it remains compliant with the most current browser version and its specific requirements.
New browser versions do not just sport technical changes but often also bring new security policies, license agreements and usage restrictions into play. More and more companies that monetize through browser add-ons feel an increased burden to keep up with the most recent browser requirements, forcing their own development schedule to remain in sync, even if this requires more coding time and developer man hours at an increased cost.
In researching alternatives to this process in order to become more time and budget efficient, Besttoolbars concluded that cash back browser add-on development can become more streamlined with a bespoke browser. Valery Kuznetsov, Key Projects Manager said, “We have recognized that having your own browser with all your required plug-ins removes the burden of managing all issues arising from frequent new versions of popular browsers. Having your own browser allows you to control updates which means you don’t need to release them more frequently than required by your business model.”
The Besttoolbars’ Custom Browser Tool is designed as the perfect solution for cash back browser add-on development without the burden of browser updates. It allows cash back companies to quickly build their own browser based on an open source Chromium browser. The custom browser can offer the company’s own add-ons and custom branding. It is also possible to restrict installation of any 3rd party add-ons to the browser so that cash back affiliate links are not spoiled by 3rd party browser add-ons. This means the browser owner always gets its revenue from the cash back and is released from the burden of keeping up with major updates to popular browsers such as Internet Explorer or Chrome.
