WOT - Helps you stay safe on the web by learning from other users experiences

WOT (Web of Trust) is an add-on for Firefox and Internet Explorer that warns you about risky websites that try to scam visitors, deliver malware, or send spam by learning from other users experiences.WOT is an online community( you become a member after the installation of WOT) for reputation rating that lets Internet users share their knowledge of websites, helping you stay in control when surfing the Web. Besides its users, WOT uses hundreds of trusted sources such as phishing site listings to keep you protected against rapidly spreading online threats.
As you search with Google, you will see a tiny icon next to the Web link (like MacAfee Siteadvisor): green to go, yellow to slow down, red to stop. You can easily customize the protection level to your way of surfing the Web. WOT has information on 17 million websites. WOT ratings are shown also on Yahoo!, Gmail, Wikipedia, and other sites.

No registration is required. Requirements:· Firefox:1.5 – 3.0b5
Download from Mozilla add-on
