Pros It actually works and it's free
Cons None so far
Summary Netcraft Toolbar has caught a number of fraudulent sites for me. And it makes it easy to report new frauds it hasn't found yet.
Pros none...because i can't use it with Firefox 184.108.40.206
Cons Doesn't work with new firefox
Summary I want to see if i like this but it doesn't work with the newer versions of firefox. Please get this fixed.
Pros good if u want the IP adresses to sites u visit
Cons didnt warn me about phishing sites
Summary Going by CNET & members reviews I decided to try it out. I liked it cuz it was lite & installed exactly what it said it was installing but sadly it was a disappointment cuz it didnt warn me about phishing sites which my trialware w/ Trend Security 2007 did. I went to a quite a few screwed up sites, even My Space, infected w/ spyware & pop ups galore just to test it & it sent me no warnings. I uninstalled & just got the google toolbar which is pretty nifty w/ all the extra buttons to add
Pros Displays sites' hosting location, including country, helping you to evaluate fraudulent urls.
Cons Does not overlay search results with safety ratings.
Summary This amazing tool displays sites' hosting location, including country, helping you to evaluate fraudulent urls. (I like that feature.) It works with Firefox and IE very well. I would get rid of McAfee SiteAdvisor forever if Netcraft toolbar overlayed search results, but oh well. Also, unlike TrendMicro's TrendProtect, it does more than just have a bar that changes color and warns you about sites, and it has better phishing detection. I would definitely put this toolbar for my default browser.

Pros Nice idea.
Cons Vanishing icons & "Tools" entries
Summary When installed, about 2/3 of my Tools drop down list vanishes. Also, many additional icons vanish from the toolbars and they are no longer available to reinstall via the right-click "Customize". This is in the initial FireFox window opened. If an additional window is opened, the icons are back. But when all windows are closed and FireFox is reopened, the icons vanish again.
