"Helps prevent you entering unsafe websites"

March 12, 2011  |  By MARCOS MACOSA

 |  Version: McAfee SiteAdvisor 3.0.1.159

Pros

I wouldn't be without it along with Firefox and No more scripts I'm able to surf the Net a lot safer than I have ever been able to.I can't remember when I last got a Virus on my Computer and I have been on the Net for over 7 Years now.

Cons

I can't find any as its only a guide to what site is safe and what isn't, It's not 100% Guaranteed. It's like asking a Friend what film they would recommend but a REALLY good friend

Summary

Its like having a guardian angle looking over your shoulder telling you when to beware

"Misleading and random ratings"

February 16, 2011  |  By JoeBeanfish

 |  Version: McAfee SiteAdvisor 3.0.1.159

Pros

Nice idea.

Cons

Terrible implementation.
Random ratings.

Summary

Terrible implementation. The ratings are often random. Sites go from green to red even though they haven't changed, and with no information about why they're red. I've seen sites that are just DNS aliases for green sites get rated red. Basically brain-dead, needs to be put out of the world's misery.

"Used to be good, but now not anymore"

August 22, 2010  |  By darthvador365

 |  Version: McAfee SiteAdvisor 3.0.1.159

Pros

Before it had some accurate reviews

Cons

Now it has alot of inaccurate reviews.

Summary

The Web Of Trust (MyWOT) is much better and more accurate than Siteadvisor. It even warns you about visiting a bad website and gives you an option to visit that bad site or not.
