Useful, but badly made Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The toolbar provdes useful information, but it behaves like a monolith. The code should be updated to match the configurability of the standard FF toolbars; Ideally up to the ability to simply embed individual components into another bar and do a way with the separate bar altogether.

A useful feature might also be to make the Risk Rating have a popup of *why* the rating was assinged, instead of just referring to the overly-generic FAQ.

Too Bad Rated 2 out of 5 stars

The usefullness of this toolbar is hindered by the amount of browser space it takes up and the amount of space it wastes. IT IS JUST TOO BIG! There is no reason to take three lines to give
one line of information-what's the point? They should allow the user to scale it vertically and horizontally or make it more space efficient themselves. Until they do, a lot of people won't bother using it.

I like this tool bar, I have found it reliable & easy to use. It is a little bulky so I only use when I need it, the rest of the time I remove it from my desktop using view toolbars.

The toolbar is a little too big and looks slightly outdated. However, that aside, the bigger problem is that it got tricked by a phishing site, and rated it as legitimate.

The toolbar is FAR TOO LARGE for its use to be useful on a netbook (tiny screen). I am searching for something better. I used to love this tool about 5 years ago.

Toolbar is large and wastes space.
Caveat Emptor. Reported a suspected "pfishing" attack from a suspected PayPal simulation. Netcraft responded that "pfishing" was unlikely from such a large respected site.
Reported the attack to spoof@paypal.com and got notice they were investigating.
I have serious doubts about the amount of "pfishing" protection netcraft will actually provide.

This toolbar works great, provides rankings and conforms ideally to any theme. I like being able to report phishing sites, too.

Thank-you to all of the Reviewers, and a Big Thumbs Down, Netcraft, for not provif=ding Images of the Large Toolbar that these people speak of.
I would never install such 1980's to early 1990's technology such a (the) Real-Estate hogging Toolbars API's~!
Thank-You Reviewers~!

Great add-on. In my point of view a lot better then WOT. I enjoy using netcraft because its small, and simply, it gives me a lot of information on the website I'm visiting. The "page rank" is simple. And you can also report sites. I always felt WOT was to clumsy.

But like someone has mentioned, netcraft dose take website names. But I don't believe they take in anything other then that. And the most information netcraft gets from you is what you give them. Thats assuming you report any sites.

it came recommended by somebody who knows a lot more about computers and the web and so i've got. for all i know it is doing a great job as it doesn't have a great deal of visibility.

a minor point would be that the netcraft toolbar takes up a lot of screen space.

excellent add-on - for those that complain about wasted space while surfing hit F11 key and you get more real estate - when you want to return it to regular use hit F11 again - voila no more problems.

Good tool. But not good enough for user with privacy. See comment from Netcraft:
"We do, however, collect the names of the web sites visited by our users in order to provide popularity ranking information and contextual reports for the site bring browsed."

No Customization Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It seems to catch more sites than the other anti-phishing options on this site... BUT its lack of customization and the inability to turn the bars visibility off and have it still work are deal breakers for me. The bar is intrusive and you cant even put anything next to it. Basically its a block of your toolbars thats are wasted on usless info. I want to be able to hide the bar and have it still work, like all the other antiphishing bars out there. I love its accuracy, I hate its static waste of space.

It is for this reason, I wont use the bar untill they make it more customizable.

Conflicts Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This newest version, Version 1.1.1.8, appears to have corrected all the conflicts I was experiencing with Mr Tech Local Install and the IP Viewers.

Thanks and make it a great day!

Conflict with mouse gestures Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Good for what it does but mouse gestures wont work when enabled. You may want to disable except when needed.

Conflict With Mr. Tech Local Install Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I found a conflict between Mr. Tech Local Install and the Netcraft Toolbar Version. When both are enabled, Netcraft removes the Mr. Tech icon, the "Theme Switcher" and the "Extension Options" sub-menus from the Firefox "Tools" menu and removes the "Install Extension" and "Install Theme" sub-menu options from the "File" menu. It may remove all of Mr. Tech's Local Install changes to the menus, but I don't know what they are beyond those.

Versions:
Firefox 2.0.0.5
Mr. Tech's Local Install 5.3.2.5
Netcraft Toolbar 1.1.1.7

Conflicts with Menu Editor Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Nice and useful for what it does. Conflicts with the Menu Editor extension. If you want to use both extensions, you may want to can keep Netcraft disabled (except when you need it) in order to preserve your nice menu customizations.
