"Not Compatible with Firefox V.6 (or Google Chrome)"

August 30, 2011  |  By TonyBeGoode

 |  Version: McAfee SiteAdvisor - Free 2011

Pros

Great Idea - I've used AVG's link scanner when I had that program and really liked it.

Cons

Firefox immediately disabled it (it's on their list of add-ons, plugins & programs known to cause stability or security problems w/ FF.) I didn't try it with IE9, as I rarely use that browser, and uninstalled it same day.

Summary

All of the programs of this type I've tried only work with IE or Firefox (and then only sometimes). I would love to see the technology evolve to allow cross-platform operation between all browsers. I believe Chromium based browsers, or at least many of their attributes, is where the future is leading us, and program developers will need to address this. Also I have to wonder if browser developers might find better ways to allow implementation of programs of this type into their browsers,( are you listening, Mozilla?) , or perhaps find effective ways of doing it themselves. Time will tell.
