"Oh, you're protected..."
Great on Windows. Does a good job of providing a visual for a potentially unsafe site. However, not so much on the Mac (see my cons).
It works so well that I completely lost my ability to connect to the internet (Snow Leopard with the latest version of all browsers). Safari, Chrome, and Firefox all failed to connect to any website. The program couldn't even update itself. I spent 20 minute troubleshooting my entire home network, since every other device was functioning normally. No matter what website I tried to visit in any of the three mentioned browsers, I got "Waiting for ...."
Guess it's kind of hard to visit a malicious site when you can't load it in the first place.
I think it is a great program and run it on my Windows computers. Unfortunately, now that we need to be more conscience of malware on the OS X platform, I guess this is not going to be one of my regular programs.
