For the past 6 months or so I have been using McAfee Site Advisor which basically alerts the user to rogue or potentially dangerous web sites that may contain critters of some type. I have been pleased with McAfee thus far and haven’t had a problem. Yesterday reader David 😛 brought to my attention another called WOT [Web Of Trust]. He stated that MSA had indicated a site was OK, but Norton stated it contained a virus. Thus he recommended WOT.
WOT states the following:
Keep yourself safe from unreliable online vendors, spam, spyware, adware, and viruses. To join our community of individual web users fighting Internet scams, download the easy-to-use browser add-on.
Which is basically what McAfee does as well. Both McAfee Site Advisor and WOT have extensions and add ons for both IE and Firefox so there is something for everyone.
But what do you use? Do you have a site blocker that you can recommend? Let us know.
