Default does this happen to anyone else?

have any of you ever seen a scrolling text at the bottom of your web browser that says "Let me help you find you dream home today!"? it was kind of weird when i noticed it because i was expecting something like "I'm watching you..." scrolling back and forth.



but i just guess its part of an ad right?

No, it's a simple javascript code that put text down there, you can make it do all kinds of interesting things, (like scroll animate change case etc....). or just display a message

it's likely that it was inserted by one of the adverts...
but I'd rather have that then the code for a popup advert!
