Editors' review

This simple Firefox extension will give you some added security while you browse.

Flagfox displays the location of a Web site's server via a flag that sits on your status bar. The flag resembles the server's country of origin. Moving your mouse over the flag reveals the server's IP address. Double-clicking the flag opens Geotool, which displays more detailed information about the server's location including the city and ISP. The Options menu lets you choose where you'd like the flag to be displayed in your status bar. You can also choose alternative flag icons, but don't get too excited, it's not a big difference--the alternative icons are just not as bright as the default icon set. With each site that we browsed, a flag appeared in the browser window that matched the country of origin provided with the Geotool.

While Flagfox doesn't offer real protection from phishing, it can help you make better decisions about which sites you go to. We recommend this free program for users of all levels.
