The reviews say it's spyware/adware. People say there is a superfish add-on. Didn't install on mine. Also developer site says they added a price comparison feature to pay for development. Again don't see a superfish icon/add-on etc.

Did you test this on Linux?

Seems that it really just allows genuine Microsoft IE (warts and all) to
run as an add-on to Firefox for Windows. No emulation or browser
spoofing, just the disadvantages of both. 

Be well - or at least have interesting symptoms!
