WOT Image LogoWeb of Trust is a unique community-based safe surfing tool that uses an intuitive traffic-light rating system to help Web users stay safe as they search, surf and shop online. The WOT add-on tells you which sites you can trust when using Google, Yahoo!, Bing, Wikipedia and other popular sites. Web site ratings are powered by a global community of millions of trustworthy users who have rated millions of websites based on their experiences. The free add-on works with Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer and is a free download.

Hostsman ScreenshotKnute Rockne once was asked why he didn't like his team to use the forward pass in football games. He responded, "When a pass is thrown 3 things can happen; 2 of them bad." That is, the pass may be completed, the opponents may intercept, or the pass may be incompleted. When you think about it, "visiting" web pages is rather the same. You may go to the correct page, your browser may be redirected, or the page you "visit" may be hiding malware. Odds: 2-1 against. Hostsman levels the playing field.(More)

Noscript Logo ImageThe NoScript Firefox extension provides extra protection for Firefox, Flock, Seamonkey and other Mozilla-based browsers: this free, open source add-on allows JavaScript, Java and Flash and other plugins to be executed only by trusted web sites of your choice (e.g. your online bank), and provides the most powerful Anti-XSS protection available in a browser. NoScript's unique whitelist based pre-emptive script blocking approach prevents exploitation of security vulnerabilities (known and even not known yet!) with no loss of functionality... You can enable JavaScript, Java and plugin execution for sites you trust with a simple left-click on the NoScript status bar icon (look at the picture), or using the contextual menu, for easier operation in popup status bar-less windows. (Check out the video tutorial on how to use this plug-in)
