This application will serve several functions. It will block all popups using popup killer code we already have developed and will function as a form/field filler much in the same way as Gator does (to fill in logins, passwords, addresses, etc.), but leaning more towards the features and power of Roboform.com. There will be no adware or spyware in this application. Complete details are listed below in the Deliverables section.
This application (we'll call it SUPER BAR for now) will serve several functions. First, it will block all popups while a user surfs the Internet. We already have the popup killer code created, so it only needs to be integrated into this application. The software being used is www.nopop.net. Second, the application will function as a form filler much in the same way as Gator does, but leaning more towards the features of [url removed, login to view] Must be able to import gator login/password files and then give the person the option of disabling/uninstalling Gator so that the annoying ads that gator has are eliminated, as well as removing their prompt when they go to a site that requires some password (we do not want Gator popping up to fill in the field as well as our program doing this.) Super Bar will make [url removed, login to view] the home page (the user will agree to this). If the user tries to change the home page to anything other than [url removed, login to view] in the future, a warning window will come up that announces the home page has been changed and all anti-popup services as well as password fillers will be disabled until the home page is restored. They will then be given the option to change the home page back to [url removed, login to view] by clicking a button. Each day a warning window should come up if the home page is still not GreasyCow (if a user selects no.) This will continue until a person changes their home page back to [url removed, login to view] or until they uninstall SuperBar. Super Bar will detect if a person goes to one of the major search engines and if so will prompt the user if they would also like to show search results from GreasyCow.com. There should be a checkbox on there that is pre-checked that says something like, "Always show search results from [url removed, login to view] on major search engines -- do not ask me again." SuperBar would then open a window that somehow displays GreasyCow results along with the other results (will need to monitor what is input into the search fields at those sites. There will also be a built in affiliate program where people can forward SUPER BAR to their friends and family or just put it on their web site. The more people that download it, the more money and prizes they can make. Statistics will be made available from their IE toolbar as they surf web pages. Details on this can come later, but some form of Affiliate program will need to be built in. SuperBar should check with our server each day so we can log who is using the application and who is not. The server side application must be incredibly robust, as it is our intention to eventually get millions of people to use this, and this might mean millions of people having their applications log in each day, so the server should user a MySQL database for speed. A warning window should come up the first time the application tries to connect to our server, explaining why the application is going to contact our server. We don't want people to start saying we are SpyWare because we do not disclose anything. Application must auto-update itself if it detects a new version is available on our server. There are more details to this project, but ran out of room here. I will provide them privately.
All Major Windows Platforms and must work with the most recent Internet Explorer versions. An AOL version will also be needed.
