    "Ransomware"

    April 9, 2014  |   By OceanLevi

    Version: WOT (Web of Trust) for Firefox 20130915

    Pros

    If you pay to have features unlocked, you get access to web sites ratings.

    Cons

    Political expression is censored
    Some news sites are censored
    It is not an antivirus and cannot replace it
    Is very difficult to fully remove
    Tracks your browsing habits and phones home

    Summary

    Web of Trust has turned into something called "Ransom-ware". This means that you will no longer be able to access ratings unless you pay a yearly fee! This is exactly what the WoT community frowns upon as it is considered malware.

    Beware of the Web of Trust (WOT) Virus!

    "Don't Bother"

    December 18, 2013  |   By BuehlerMoving

    Version: WOT (Web of Trust) for Firefox 20130915

    Pros

    Nothing good to talk about

    Cons

    Waste of time
    power happy people that bash your site to death no matter what you do
    end result - bad score regardless

    Summary

    Don't even bother trying. You are better off with no WOT score rather than trying to get a good one. They bash your site to death and even when you do everything that they recommend, it still isn't good enough. It's a waste of time and energy for a bad result in the end.

    "Great add on for any browser."

    December 14, 2013  |   By weegee2899

    Version: WOT (Web of Trust) for Firefox 20130915

    Pros

    Warns you about risky sites on google searches and a warning pops up when you go to a poorly rated site.

    Cons

    It's an add on, so it may slow down your browser.
    Some sites that are good are rated bad.

    Summary

    Overall a good add on.
