Editors' Review

+

This search tool won us over with its quick, detailed results about domains and host servers. Active Whois Plugin for Firefox downloads and installs a standalone application in addition to the browser add-on. One click on the button adds it to your browser window and results are quickly shown on the companion program's interface. It includes detailed domain and network information for the page you're visiting, from top-level domain info down to administrative or technical contacts. Users also can opt to use the standalone app for "who is" queries by simply typing the Web URL in the entry field. Search results can be printed and saved in plain-text format. Although its moniker implies otherwise, we found it also works with Internet Explorer. If you want detailed information about a URL, this plug-in is a good option.

"THIS IS NOT FREEWARE!!"

April 29, 2006  |  By Roboto8088

 |  Version: Active Whois plugin for Firefox 1.0.1

Pros

It's quite easy to use. Just click the planet to bring the page owner's info up, no need to manually type in a web URL or IP. Very helpfull in determining if you're using a legitimate site, or phish bait.

Cons

This program is NOT FREEWARE! (CNET editors need to change the licensing info.) You can use it free for 30 days, then they insist you pay $20 to "activate" it. This goes against the opensource nature of Firefox. Plus there are free whois lookup applications out there already (check nsauditor.com for a free whois tool.)
