Web of Trust (WOT) for Internet Explorer provides users with a simple meter for gauging a Web site's danger level. With easy to read warnings, this program only leaves one thing to chance with your safety.

The program does not have anything to offer on your computer's desktop because it embeds itself into your Internet Explorer browser for quick access. Depending on the Web site you visit, the program's icon turns red, yellow, or green to illustrate the danger level. Clicking on the icon displays a chart showcasing Trustworthiness, Vendor Reliability, Privacy, and Child Safety. The warnings are intuitive and should not require a trip to the Help file to understand. The program functioned well for our tests, glowing green for popular news sites and red for less reliable pages. Our only complaint is that users must dig into the settings menu to have WOT stop a dangerous site from opening on your computer. So until that time, concerned users may be exposed to potentially harmful sites. However, once this is activated, the program does a great job of warning you and providing the option to continue or stop. WOT also provides interesting features that allow worldwide users to rate Web sites for danger, thus creating an online community of like-minded people.

With a simple interface, easy-to-understand functions, and interesting features, we found this freeware to be a helpful download for users looking to increase their online security.
