Customers of UKDVDR who subscribe to their news mailings will have been informed that the company is "now the NUMBER 1 rated UK media distributor as rated by the premier web traffic monitoring system ALEXA (a division of Amazon)."
This is a great achievement and they are to be congratulated.
BUT UKDVDR also invites its customers to download the Alexa Toolbar so that customers can further monitor the company's progress. No bad thing, the customer might think. Probably not, but what UKDVDR does not inform its customers is about other potential spyware activities of the Alexa Toolbar.
More info is widely available; http://www.imilly.com/alexa.htm is a good starting point.
