Thread: Gator Becomes Claria

  1. #1
    Gator Becomes Claria

    The Gator Corporation is going through a renaming to Claria. The company has been the target of several lawsuits by companies that felt the Gator pop-up network effectively stole user attention from their publishing or advertising sites. Several of these have been settled already, but the predatory connotations of Gator probably don't help from a brand perspective. The company has also had a very difficult time distinguishing its disclosure-festooned adware from the more sleazy versions produced by other companies that have earned the name spyware.

    Gator new site


    Keep your eyes open next time when you run ad-aware or Spybot.

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.
