Useless unless I am downloading something.... but I like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! =)
That is very useful for me as an SEO guy
One of the must have extensions in my opinion. Works well in Firefox 3 too. Thanks.
This plugin is simply great.
Not only it is indeed a pleasure to waste time by looking at details and maps of the location of the web sites I browse, but I find it very useful as I'm often wanting to find out where a web server is located.
Very useful addon indeed! I prefer this addon also for Microsoft Internet Explorer... Thanks Dave!
Thanks for the kind review, however I won't be making an MS IE version of Flagfox, sorry. I know some people may be stuck with it at work or other places, but I'd have to completely rewrite this thing from scratch to work with them and I simply don't use IE. With the exception of search engine plugins (which are multi-platform) most extensions listed here are written for Mozilla-based software only.
Thank you for this great extension, and thanks for putting the alternate icon set in there. I was just about to complain that the flags were too glossy when I saw the option. Thank you!! Keep up the good work.
Sometimes I found myself curious about which county's site I'm browsing or simply needing to have such info...
You solved my problem. Thank you!
Does what it says on the box! Very nicely done ext'n that even ID's a local file in the tab with an icon of a house. ID's country quickly and access's Whois directly when needed. Hovering mouse over flag icon reveals URL, IP, and country the server is located in. A nice addition to anyones Add-on arsenal, even if your simply curious about the origin of the web page being served up in your browser.
Well done Dave! Keep this one up to date for us. Thanks for your efforts.
YOUR PLUG IN IS REALLY NEAT. IT GIVES A SENSE OF SECURITY AS YOU ARE GOING AROUND THE WEB. IT IS like BEING ABLE TO SEE WHILE YOU ARE DRIVING. WITHOUT THIS PLUG-IN ONE HAS A SENSE OF UNCERTAINTY AS TO WHERE ONE REALLY IS; HOWEVER, YOUR PLUG IN FIXES THAT.
I must mention ,thought, that websites that go through a proxy may not be identified with their OWN IP or geographic location. I have also seen some websites for which there isn't much info. they seem to be able to restrict access to their ip, location, name of server, etc. BUT OVERALL, YOUR PLUG-IN IS VERY NEAT. THANK YOU!! :) eathisdying.
I like your metaphor, "It is like being able to see where you are driving." However, I should note, that we provide an extra bit of awareness, not security. Phishing servers can be in America just as easily as anywhere else. (though, yeah, if you see "Bank of America" shown as in Nigeria, you might think twice ;)
With respect to a server being proxied, yes, there's no way around that. You'll only see the IP (and Flagfox will only see the location for) the end server that sends you the page, which in that case would be the proxy. You could try using the Whois feature in this instance, as that info is looked up via the DNS registration and not the IP. (for web-based proxies, your URL root is the proxy's, so a Whois will show up for them; just enter the site's domain name in the Whois blank manually)
I'm glad someone decided to continue this project, I always enjoyed the old version, and was sorely disappointed when I realized how out of date the GeoIP data in it was, and stopped using it.
Neat, useful and it works
Thanks for a great little extension. Works very well (especially since version 3), and very useful and interesting seeing where some websites are hosted. Good stuff.
