This nifty Firefox extension displays Web site rating information for all search results, but it failed to support one of the search engines cited.
TrustWatch Search for Firefox places a small, modest button on the lower-right corner of your browser. It uses a color-rating scheme to warn surfers about potentially dangerous Web sites known to have sent phishing e-mails and spam in the past and that may install covert spyware or adware on your computer. TrustWatch Search for Firefox supports Yahoo and MSN placing a red, yellow, or green indicator beside search results, and results were accurate and reliable. Simply click the indicators to view more information about the site or to report the site for phishing or fraudulent activity. However, Google is listed as a supported site, but the application failed to work with Google searches during our tests.
Google fans won't appreciate it, but others may like this free extension's protective measures.
