    Cool WOT launches new version of the browser security tool

    Web of Trust has launched a new version of the browser security tool

    Web of Trust launches a new version of the WOT safe surfing add-on with customizable protection. Experienced Web users who prefer “Light” protection get a simple warning if they surf to a page with a poor reputation, whereas selecting “Maximum Safety” will prevent a risky page from loading. Parents with young children can choose the “Parental Control” mode which blocks access to sites that contain pornography or other adult content.
    WOT provides four convenient one-click protection options that can be changed instantly depending on the situation:

    · “Light” protection suits experienced Web users

    · “Basic” protection guides the user by giving warnings

    · “Maximum Safety” stops dangerous Web sites from loading

    · “Parental Control” blocks access to Web sites with a poor child safety rating and no rating at all

    Web of Trust offers Internet users preventive protection against Web-based attacks, online scams, identify theft, and unreliable shopping sites. The WOT security add-on provides safety ratings to search results when using Google, Yahoo!, Digg and other popular sites, helping users protect their computers and personal information. Web site ratings are continuously updated by the user community and from numerous trusted sources, such as phishing site listings.

    Supporting Facts of WOT:



    · WOT has been downloaded by 4 million users
    · Information on 22 million websites
    · 1 in every 20 websites is harmful
    · WOT users contribute by rating and commenting on websites
    · WOT also receives information from a large number of trusted sources, such as PhishTank, hpHosts, DNS-BH Malware Domain list and Artists Against 419.
    · Available in 14 languages, now also in Chinese and Japanese

    The free Internet security add-on works with Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers and can be downloaded at MyWot.

    I have NIS 2009 installed. It has great website filters built in. IE 8 also checks websites. Isn't this program a little redundant for those using other programs such as these?

    Absolutely not, in my opinion.
    WOT is an add on which doesn't conflicts with Norton Internet Security 2009 or other security suites

    Good, I will try it although I already have Norton IS09 and McAfee site advisor for the IE. I wish they would also have it for some of the other browsers (Opera, Safari, Google, etc.)
