The Information of Click Caption

Click Caption is categorized as an ad-supported program developed by Delaware LLC. This application can allow you to make searches directly from the current website without navigating away. But the problem is that the program has an annoying trait. It will generate unwanted text-links and pop-up ads when working on IE, Chrome and Firefox. That is to say, the Click Caption will highlight some words and phrases on the current webpage and convert them to link texts.
