    Version: Web of Trust for Internet Explorer 20100303

    Pros

    I un-installed 2 hours aftre installing it

    Cons

    Wrong results and biased results

    Summary

    I just can't trust a piece of software that allows others who might have an interest in the site to provide an opinion.

    "A very dependable guide to unknown web sites."

    August 20, 2010  |   By josmundson

    Version: Web of Trust for Internet Explorer 20100303

    Pros

    Solid performance with regular updates continues to define trusted sites.

    Cons

    Some sites are very destructive and should be avoided at all costs but no stay away warning for the really dangerous sites exists.

    Summary

    Very helpful wandering the web looking for new sites, 100% reliable as a guide, quick to react when browsing and uses few resources on the computer.

    "this is a good feature and works on history"

    August 9, 2010  |   By activelid

    Version: Web of Trust for Internet Explorer 20100303

    Pros

    the color indication is fine and it is something I can trust

    Cons

    although it works well the positioning is not always centered before you enter a site but when you are into any given site it shows quite well at the end of the top line which gives you a choice

    Summary

    i like the overall function of this tool but again while web surfing it only shows the potential warniings and has no stopage of sitr entering so for a visual tool its good but with no sound or other functions keep your security on when others may have access and don't realize what it's function is

    "Great idea but need to be careful of malicious ratings."

    August 4, 2010  |   By ceaser10

    Version: Web of Trust for Internet Explorer 20100303

    Pros

    You can,t beat that warning before you enter a site, it makes you pause and think about what you are about to do.

    Cons

    Seems to be a bit easy to brand a site as spam, or a scam these things need to be verified.

    "Needs to rethink how sites are rated."

    July 25, 2010  |   By wolverine486

    Version: Web of Trust for Internet Explorer 20100303

    Pros

    -Has warned me about sites that were malicious
    -Takes up little to no resources
    -Better than steadvisor

    Cons

    Not always accurate in its rating. Anyone can rate a website

    Summary

    In theory this is an excellent program, just the way websites are rated needs to be changed.
    There are many great people in the WOT rating community, however there are still far too many people who rate sites poorly based on false information or reasonings.

    "Awful; Ethical Issues"

    May 26, 2010  |   By MithrandirAgain

    Version: Web of Trust for Internet Explorer 20100303

    Pros

    Occasionally gets it right about a website.

    Cons

    Allows ANYONE to rate a site good or bad, even if the site isn't what the user said it was. (Their site is very much umoderated.) Also jams registry up with empty code.

    Summary

    Overall, I don't like this program one bit. As I said, this program has ethical issues

    Version: Web of Trust for Internet Explorer 20100303

    Pros

    it lets me know if a site is safe to visit or not. it can also be set up to block harmful sites. a little more protection in todays computer world cant hurt.

    Cons

    i cant think of anything. its a good product.

    Summary

    to keep my pc safe from threats i trust wot. i use it as my first line of defense. of course i still use a good firewall, antivirus and antispyware, but i dont get infected because i only go to sites wot has approved
