    "Decent Chrome extension for web browsing safety"

    April 24, 2013  |   By javelinadream


    Fast, lightweight extension in Chrome browser. Good for a quick check when navigating to a new website that I've never visited. Best feature: Displays safety indicator for short URLs! If it shows red, I don't click on a bitly or owly or other short link.


    Some sites are rated poorly i.e. false positives, due to perceived objectionable political or religious content. Unfortunately, some other political or religious oriented websites are rated well, depending on subjectivity of WOT rating community.

    Also, there are websites that have pornographic content, but are not scams, nor have malware. It would be good to rate those sites highly, and the unsafe pornography websites poorly. It is a fact that internet users view pornography. It should be rated poorly for child safety, but not necessarily bad for vendor reliability, or privacy.


    WOT is reliable about flagging websites associated with browser exploits, spam, or blacklisted by major anti-virus and security vendors. My overall experience with WOT has been positive, as a consumer, and occasional social media user.
