You will notice that instead of the usual homepage and new tabs, your browser will now load a different page. It will change your search engine, which might insert sponsored content among the real results. Hijackers will reroute you to advertisement sites so as to generate traffic for them, so that owners can make money. Some users end up with malware via these types of reroutes since some browser hijackers are able to redirect to pages that are crawling with malware. Malicious software is a much more serious infection and it could cause more dire consequences.
