Editors' review

Shazou is a free Firefox add-on that maps and displays server information for the Web site you are currently visiting. Though its findings weren't always reliable, we still found it useful to have around.

The add-on places a tiny shortcut icon on your status bar. As you're browsing the Web, one click is all it takes to pull up the Web site's server location and domain owner, along with a MapQuest map of the location. The server location information includes the server name, IP address, organization, country, and city. The domain owner information includes the name and address. You can zoom in and out of the map, and switch back and forth between street, aerial, and hybrid maps. We encountered a few instances when Shazou failed to pull up any information for a site, but more often than not, it successfully and quickly pulled the Web site information and map when we clicked the button. A button for submitting the site for phishing also is included, but other than a confirmation and OK button, there's really no way to tell what happens after that.

The add-on itself is unobtrusive and easy enough for anyone to use. The information it provides left us feeling a little safer while browsing the Web, making this freeware a true bargain.
