Snapdo didn’t hijack your browser. You must have downloaded it when you installed another program. It happens all the time – freeware often comes bundled with other programs. Uninstalling it shouldn’t be difficult. Try their Help section http://www.snapdoapp.com/faq/SnapDo/FAQ.aspx?lang=en

That's just my two cents but honestly, it wasn't that easy after all. First, I couldn't find anything with that name, no Span.do or Snap do software, nothing. It was hiding under completely different name - Video Performer. When I removed it, Span.do was still there, so I had to re-install my web browsers which surprisingly didn't help at all!!! Snap.do was still there. How's that even possible? So, anyway, after spending two hours or so, I finally manged to remove it, party manually following instructions located here:

and then using this nice tool called AdwCleaner which is available for download from Bleeping computer site:
