Editors' Review

This free plug-in gives you a little added security by allowing you to view a link's security risk before clicking on it. Though we encountered a few minor annoyances, it worked well for us overall.

After installation, HHOTT View opens Firefox if you have that browser installed, even if it's not your default browser. For IE, we had to add the button to the toolbar. We didn't like that it added an extra toolbar for just one button. The button has a drop-down menu that enables the preview and the safe-browsing feature. The link to the publisher's site didn't work, but the About link did. There's a brief video on the site that tells you how the program works, although it's easy enough to figure out on your own. We were able to pass our mouse over each and every link on a particular Web page, without clicking, to reveal a tiny icon denoting the link's risk. Green, of course, means safe, and red, unsafe. When we disabled the safe-browsing feature, a blue icon appeared with every link. We liked the preview feature, which allowed us to view the link's source page in a separate window, and without interrupting our browsing.

We appreciate this plug-in's unobtrusive approach to keeping you safe. This is a great tool to have on hand if you're looking for a little added security.
