The TrustMyWeb add-on can help you to have a safe Internet browsing attitude by checking the status in your Firefox status bar. Without disturbing your Internet browsing, just check if the bullet in your status bar is green and go on!
Here is a little more information about this add-on from the developers:
There are 3 criteria we analyze to set the status of a website : adult / shocking content, phishing fraud, and malicious software eventual presence. If one of these criteria is bad, the global status will be negative. Here is the list of the different status we are using :
- The status will be represented with a red picture if a criterion is “unsafe” (phishing / malware).
- The status will be represented with a pink picture if a criterion is “adult / shocking site”.
- The status will be represented with a green picture if all criteria are “safe”.
You can pick up TrustMyWeb from the Firefox Add-ons website.
