The Sale-o browser application (by WebPick Internet Holdings Ltd.) is adware specifically designed to serve as an advertisement platform for retailers. It has no benefit for your system and could rather cause trouble.
How Does The Sale-o Work?
Sale-o adware is compatible with the most popular browsers – Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Once in your system, it may gain access to your browsing history and collect data about your browsing preferences in order to display targeted ads.
It then starts displaying multiple pop-up ads and banners that you would not be able to get rid of. The problem is that these pop-ups are not harmless. Clicking on them may redirect you to corrupted websites that could infect your system with additional malware as well. Sale-o is also capable of monitoring your browsing habits, and recording it along with your sensitive data such as banking information, logins, etc.
How Does Sale-o Enter Your System?
Sale-o enters your system via the most popular method of spreading adware and PUPs (potentially unwanted program) – bundling.

In order to protect your system from unwanted programs and malware, you must disable to bundling option during the installation process and aim for custom installation instead.
