On Wander Burst’s official web page there is little to no information about what the purpose of the program is. It is unclear exactly how it is supposed to be beneficial. At it says on the page is “A journey across the web begins with you. Take the first step with Wander Burst”, which is extremely ambiguous. There is one thing you can be sure about though: that it will start showing ads whenever you try to surf the web, which is annoying to say the least.
