If the Gifables page has been set as a homepage and a New Tab URL on your Google Chrome browser, it means that a browser extension Gifables has been added to the list of add-ons. Since not much information about this browser extension is available on its official website, users do not immediately understand that the presence of Gifables is a result of the installation of this extension. Of course, not all the people willingly install this extension from its official website. Some of them get it from a file-sharing or a similar dubious third-party website together with free software, so it is not at all surprising that there are people who cannot explain why Gifables is loaded when they open their browsers. If you are one of those users who know nothing about the installation of the Gifables extension, go to remove it today. It is the only way to remove the undesirable search tool from browsers too.
Long story short, Gifables is not harmful. The actual pitfall, however, lies in the tactic for driving traffic to the rogue page. Computer users get redirected to it because of the misdemeanor of an extension added to their preferred web browser. The add-on is cross-browser, so it supports Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. The settings affected in the course of this attack include the homepage, new tab and default search – no matter what URL value the victim had chosen to apply for these, they will all be replaced with Gifables without any authorization.
