One one hand, Superfish is a marketing tool... it's optional (as you saw, there is a checkbox in X-Notifier Options to disable it) ...and it's available to add-on developers so they can generate some income from their work developing add-ons.  Superfish presents alternative product suggestions when you shop online.  
However, this year, another Superfish product has been getting bad press with Lenovo laptops...

I've been using X-Notifier for a long time (but I don't use Superfish).
I believe the Superfish in X-Notifier is different from Lenovo's... but it doesn't mean it will stay that way.
