Editors' Review

+

Netcraft Toolbar for Firefox provides comprehensive security information on the phishing efforts of Web sites, though the tool doesn't actually block sites deemed guilty. Its database stores the attributes of any given site and offers ratings based on reports made by users. A simple bar attaches itself to your Firefox browser window, where you'll be able to see how long a visited Web site has been around, its ranking among the most visited Web sites, a detailed site report, and the managing hosts history. Selecting a topic on the toolbar displays a corresponding page where you can drill down for more information, reading up on the history of the site and its Web server. You can report phishing sites for analysis and bugs, though you can't actually block a suspected site. Still, Netcraft Toolbar for Firefox is great for those wanting to know the background of any given Web site.

"Have confidence in its performance"

July 18, 2007  |  By EdonSpirit

 |  Version: Netcraft Toolbar for Firefox 1.1.1.7

Pros

The information given helps deduce "mal-sites"

Within an hour of reporting a potential "mal-site" Netcraft had blocked access.

Cons

WIt all the known site3s and sevices that are targets of phishing you would think they would be a way to let you know when the address does not match the know target host.

"Aids safer surfing"

June 26, 2007  |  By nigc

 |  Version: Netcraft Toolbar for Firefox 1.1.1.7

Pros

Easy to download & use. Gives clear info on site safety & is light on resources.

Cons

1 It reduces the size of the browser window due to the addition of the toolbar.

2 Ratings often differ with those of McAfee SiteAdvisor.

The latter is the main reason why this app doesn't get 5 stars.
