This is a cool addon and useful to try to avoid *-ware sites.
An exceptionally wonderful add-on. Has saved me on numerous occasions. A must-have for every firefox fan. And I'll go a bit further and say that firefox is not complete without WOT. Thumbs up to all who have developed such a amazing add-on.
Nice addon. Saved me on various occasions. Thumbs up for you guys!
I tried this on a number of searches and web sites that I know what the results should be and though it didn't always exactly agree with what I thought it should say, it was in the ballpark.
My biggest two complaints are
1) Colors. The greens and reds are WAY to close to the same shade and difficult to distinguish. Especialy true of the reds. I tried the color blind version and didn't find the colors to be intuitive at all. Better to have 1-bright red, 2-pink, 3-orange, 4-purple/vilot, 5-bright red. This would follow a narutal color progression and be much more easily distinguished and easily read.
2) The color dots on a search page needs a slight, user configurable delay before the popup shows up. Right now, when I simply move my mouse across the screen I keep getting these popups. It would be a great improvement if I had a slight delay of between 1/2 to 2 seconds before the popup showed up. It should only happen when I put my mouse on the color icon. Not on the link. At least make that a user configurable option. That way I would only get it when I actually wanted it to show up.
Other than that, I really like the add-on.
The community rates the websites.
It gives a further piece of security and blocks BAD sites!
Great add on,
WOT has become an important part of my safety armory. I visit lots of new websites every week and have found the warnings of risky websites that WOT provides valuable. It makes surfing not only safer, but also faster because it helps to avoid the scum. I also provide ratings on sites that I have experience on.
The good thing (besides being community-based of course) is that this is not intrusive (contrary to the NoScript addon for instance).
Great Addon! Lets you know if you should click that link or not and saves you from potentially harmful spyware and malware as well as bad vendors RECOMMENDED FOR SURE
This is a great tool for those who want to be safe online. Be careful about the red website while don't think green means completely safe, as it is community based it is bound to make error. Best if used with McAfee site advisor
Great website rating service. Works very well and extremely accurate.
Very usefull protection-tool! 5 stars from me for WOT! .oO|MUST-HAVE FOR FF|Oo.
Really nice add on to all firefox users. Gives great results. Really recommended to everyone.
It's ok but i think the icons next to links need to have different color variations. I could hardly tell the difference between them and sometimes I get confused.
Thanks! I've used this on Firefox,before but I use flock now, But every time I get a open-source-coded browser, I make sure I get WOT, it has definitely saved me multiple times. I love this add on.
A really useful add-on!! Good job.
Good system of notes and very trustable qualifications, i went away of some suspicious sites thanks to WOT!
I love this extension! It really does protect me and my computer. I highly recommend this to everyone.
However there is one thing that bothers me; in search results, there is a tiny WOT icon next to every single link. (this is not the only place they are)
I find these tiny icons annoying. I think an option to remove these tiny icon would be helpful. However, even with the icons removed, hovering over a link would popup the WOT scorecard/rating of the site.
You can configure where and how the ratings are shown on the add-on settings. For example, if you're not a big fan of green icons everywhere, you can set the add-on to show only negative ratings.
It helps for safer surfing,but has a lot of false positives.And since anyone can report a site,anyone can report a site that is clean for reasons other than safety.I very strongly suspect this is the case in a couple examples that I`ve noted.
If you find a false positive, you can report it to us here:
Awesome add-on. One of my must-have add-ons.
The link first link on the Google search results for "OpenOffice" does not link to OpenOffice.org it goes to an advertisers site made to look like OpenOffice.org.
The poor WOT marks for this link are correct. This is exactly the thing WOT alerts you to and protects you against and one of the reasons WOT is so great.
Brilliant, alerts me to any challenging sites before I've even read the address, unobtrusive little colored circles quickly and cleanly inform users of potential risks and it can be temporarily disabled if you need it to be!
A thank you note to the developer.....
In " Wot " you have provided a safe approach to internet exploration. Your efforts should be applauded.
Remember the adage.. you can please most of the people most of the time.....
Wot deserves five star recommendation.
An absolute must have.
Possibly the best add-on in firefox. Steers you away from all the eronious / dodgy website links. Especially useful if you are seeking computer repair tools as the net is full of bugs.
Also warns you of bad " ads " whilst searching a webpage.
